Cosy Cove, Enfield’s only pop-up shop powered by volunteers on the Retail Ready People project, will be open and ready for business in the heart of Enfield town centre at 10am on Saturday 10 November for three weeks only.
Cosy Cove marks the beginning of pioneering voluntary project Retail Ready People, a FREE 12-week skills development and volunteering programme giving 16 – 25 year olds the chance to set up and run a pop-up shop in their local area. The Enfield volunteers have opted to provide their customers with a space where they can relax and check out the seasonal offerings to keep them cosy this winter.
The volunteers are creating a space where locals can celebrate the Enfield community, helping to repair some of the damage done to the area’s reputation following last year’s riots.
Throughout November, Cosy Cove will be located at 16 Burleigh Way, and will be open Tuesdays to Sundays from 10am until 5pm.
A range of snug seasonal clothing and accessories will be on sale at Cosy Cove: jumpers, scarves, hats, gloves and other handmade unique products made by local people.
Ellen Louise Patmore, who is heading up the News and Promo team, said: “Following the riots last year, we want to challenge people’s negative perceptions of young people stereotypes about young people. What better way than creating a relaxing comfortable place where the community can get together and get kitted out for winter at the same time?”
