We are a Community Benefit Society established in order to set up a sustainable village shop in Bishop Wilton. The shop will be owned and managed by the community, will be run mainly by volunteers and will operate for the benefit of the community as a whole. It will be attractive, welcoming and inclusive and will provide valuable services.
For most villages a shop is an important focal point and for some, especially those without transport, it is a vital lifeline. It is a meeting place, a communication hub and a linchpin of village life.
Much of the appeal of our village rests on its sense of community. It’s the reason many people have moved here and remain here. We think that our community shop will support and enhance that village spirit and we are looking forward to opening in the not-too-distant future!
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
