Burrington lost its village shop in October 2014. A steering group was formed to begin the work of creating a new Community Shop within the village. This site will keep everybody up to date with our progress. But the headline news is that as of 23rd September 2015 there is now a Community Shop operating within the village!
A public meeting was held on 29th October 2014 in the Village Hall to hear about how Chittlehamholt went about setting up their shop and for everybody to ask questions and give their views as to what was needed.
A second meeting was held on 6th November for those who couldn’t make the 29th and to finalise an initial steering group. At the end of the open meeting the group set about preparing a questionnaire to go to every household in Burrington. This has now been completed and the results analysed.
The committee is now preparing a business plan, have set up a more formal organisation so that a bank account could be opened and joined the Plunkett Foundation as they can provide a lot of support to fledgling community shops. We are now a “Community Business Society”, registered with the Financial Conduct Authority (no. 7123)
We visited several Community Shops in the area to see what makes them successful and what to avoid. We also looked at various locations that have been suggested to us as possible places that we could have a shop – the Parish Hall appeared to offer the most appropriate solution to our initial needs, and that after opening we could pursue the planning of a more permanent building near the Methodist Chapel. Recently we were offered space within Pickards Country Store. This offer has been accepted and we opened this shop for business on 23rd September.
Work towards the permanent building has now also started. And hopefully, within a short time we will have our own shop rather than just a drawing of one and that it will have “Burrington Community Shop” over the door! That goal will require a large amount of money to be raised – thanks to all who have started us on our way.
Thank you to everybody who has supported us up until now and we hope you will all now support the shop by using it for as much as is practical.
