CROWS

Community Redevelopment Of Wethersfield Shop

"Our Village is for living not just for sleeping"

WELCOME

CROWS Committee has been established with the intention of creating a community run shop, with postal services, café facilities and take-away refreshments capacities.

We have launched our Community Share Offer Scheme to raise the necessary funds to open a community shop. Shares purchased will be fully refunded if for any reason the shop does not open.

Our intention is to create a shop that will serve the needs of the whole community.

The shop will offer:

      • quality local produce and appropriate store cupboard items
      • local farmers and producers an outlet to sell to local people
      • training and development opportunities to volunteers
      • the opportunity for daily connection with others to those who feel isolated
      • access to less mobile and disabled people
      • local young people will be able to gain valuable work experience in the shop

Why we carried out a survey

The survey was the first step in ascertaining local requirements. We needed to know local views on whether there is enough support for a local shop, what provisions should be stocked and preferred opening times. The data collated will not be shared with any third parties, this information will only be used to form a basis for our shop development.

The survey is now closed.

Survey findings will be published on this website.

  • 57% will use the shop 2-3 times per week
