Benington Village Community Shop

The Development Group for the Village Shop met with a representative from The Plunkett Foundation who gave some very valuable advice concerning the work to be undertaken to establish the shop. She suggested a visit to another community shop in Essex to hear how they managed to establish their community shop in the small village. In the meantime the group are working on designing the shop building and obtaining quotations for the build/installation of a temporary building, subject to obtaining planning permission.

Fundraising: There is a selection of jams, jellies, chutneys and marmalade for sale in the Village Hall to start our fundraising. Ifanyone has any surplus preserves they would be happy to donate for sale please let me know.

If anyone have any surplus fruit to give away to make jams or jellies for sale to start the fundraising for the shop, please give me a call and I will come and collect. 01438 869 468
