Things are moving fast towards the opening of our new Community Shop and Cafe. Over the last 6 years over 300 residents have become members and more than 100 people in the village have been actively involved.

Together we have raised over £190,000 (March 2018) towards our village shop.  Over the last 5 months seven villagers have made donations and pledges totalling nearly £60,000.  Read about the Community Share Offer

Can You Get Free Money From Your Employer?

Do you work for one of the companies listed below?

If so, then they operate a Fund Match scheme.  This means you can get money from them to match money that  we raise for the shop.

Companies like match funding because it proves they support their employees and get involved in community activities.  And it makes their employees look good.

Please ask your HR department if your company runs a similar scheme.  There are many more employers not on this list.
