Summer's officially here! Who wants to be indoors then? Not us, that's fo'sho. To that end, this month SHOP has concocted some SHOP events that you can get involved with not matter where you may happen to be, you don't even have to be within a light year of SHOP. How's that for considerate? Read on to find out more...
A Tale from SHOP
This week at SHOP, a keen-couple came in looking for a shop event that happened exactly one year ago. Sadly, they were an entire year late for it. The lesson you should take from this tale is that if you want to get involved in a shop event, then you shouldn't wait a year, cus you will be a
year too late.
SUNDAY GIRLS AND BOYS NO MORE
We managed to frighten away our volunteers after a mere three Sundays of opening! That's quite an achievement. More news to follow on this next month...
Hitting SHOP next week will be a massive load of men's shirts and tee shirts all ready to kit you out for the summer. Women are not to be forgotten either, as the women's department will also be receiving some summer tops to be proud of.

Tuesday 28th June - 7:30pm – 10pm
The Record Club aim of the night is to play 2 or 3 long play records and to really appreciate the music. These records might be old classics, forgotten gems or brand spanking new. The records are usually nominated by the people in the club and voted on in the week before the night.
You can attend from 7:30pm and the first record is at 8.00pm. Feel free to bring some nibbles and drinks along.
Right then, this is where you can get involved with SHOP and SHOP events but without all that old-fashioned 'actually having to be there' stuff! Separate togetherness is what SHOP and Woody Allen like to call it.
We're going to ease you in with just one this month, but look out for more as the months progress...
You know when you wander around and you see something that you think only you have noticed? It could be because it's unusual, puzzling, or because it's beautiful, but it kind of becomes 'your thing'? Well, we want you to take some picures and share them with us.
We'll starts you off with a SHOP example from something we submitted to a friend's website a while back:
So get thinking and then on the 9th, get snapping with the knowledge that there are up 721 other Shop Club members wandering about across the world doing exactly the same thing.
Then, send your anonymous contribution to email@example.com with the subject line: 'my secret' and we'll do something special with them.
