Our History

Roots deep in

the community

In late 2016, the last remaining village shop closed. Public meetings were held, working parties formed and quickly the community set to work on setting up a community shop, with guidance from the Plunkett Foundation.

Finding a site for the shop was a significant challenge and we are grateful to the Methodist Church for granting us a 10- year lease on land adjacent to the chapel.

Kevin, our shop manager has been with us since we opened in May 2018. He’s been supported by many volunteers who work in the shop and on the management committee.
