For most villages a community shop is a vital service; it is a meeting place, communication centre and an important lynchpin of village life. Much of the appeal of our village rests on its sense of community. It is the reason many people have moved here and remain here. The presence of a community shop would, we feel, greatly enhance that community spirit.
This questionnaire is the first step. We need to know your views on what might be provided and what would receive your support. Please be as honest and realistic as possible in your answers!
Your response will be treated in confidence. It is entirely anonymous, unless you wish to add your name at the end.
The results (along with those collected via hard copies) will be presented to a public meeting when the proposal can be discussed further.
We would also like to hear from you if you feel you could help in any way with the running of the Community Shop. There will be a wide range of tasks to be done from the initial setting up of the project to managing the enterprise and being involved in the day to day practical operation.
