Coming in 2017 – Your Community Store!

We are very excited to announce that planning permission for the extension to the village hall – which will be home to your new community store – has been granted!

Thank you to those of you who wrote to B&DBC in support of the application.

We are currently working with the architect to prepare the detailed specification and drawings before sending it to 5 local builders to tender for the build.

The 344th UK Community shop has recently opened in Devon where it aims to contribute to the, “village in a way that enriches the lives of the volunteers and customers reducing isolation as well as making food available locally and more conveniently.”

This sums up the ambition of the Candover Valley Community Store project and we are more determined than ever to achieve it.

The New Year will see the launch of our fundraising appeals, which will enable everyone to contribute and be a part of this community project.
