We have raised over £20,000 for your community shop, and due to a late flurry of interest we have decided to extend the deadline until Sunday 28th October. So if you are thinking of buying shares, now is the time to do so and help keep the momentum going.

VisionWe’re a community benefit society, a form of cooperative; set up to build and operate a community shop and café. Our shop will be built within what was once the walled garden of Little Plumstead Hall. We’ll be restoring the garden to its former Victorian splendour.
Right now we have no local shop, although around 3,500 people live in our parish. Public consultation very clearly showed the demand for a community owned shop. The café will become a convenient meeting place and the walled garden a super setting for community events. The garden will also grow fresh produce which will be sold in the shop.
With the support of the Plunkett Foundation, who have helped more than 300 similar community owned shops, we’re confident our venture will be a success.
