Our Community Purpose
Community purpose is at the heart of Our Shop with volunteers working in the Shop and on our Management Committee, supporting the Shop Manager and Staff. Our Shop actively contributes to village life from being a lifeline to villagers during the Pandemic, to active involvement in annual festivities such as Feast Week and Christmas Lights. And when able financially, supporting several key village organisations and charities including the Community Fund.
