Our shop and café has won several awards, including best rural shop in Britain in 2019, as shown on BBC News (below). We also appeared on ITV Regional News.
The shop is in the centre of the award-winning village of Hampstead Norreys, runner-up in Channel 4's 'Village of the Year' competition, 2018. It featured heavily in the television programme - we welcomed Penelope Keith (To the Manor Born) and Patrick Grant (Great British Sewing Bee) who described the shop as 'the beating heart of this village'.
The shop is run by the community for the community. We have a management committee who oversee the strategic direction of the shop and café, but the day-to-day management is undertaken by our lovely managers Mandy and Trish, shown above. We have member shareholders who pay a nominal £10 contribution: the share supports the shop and enables shareholders to attend the AGM and vote. New members are very welcome. For more information, please see our members page.
Are you lost? We do not want to lose touch with our shareholder members, so if you have moved since first buying your share in 2011, please send your new address and email address to firstname.lastname@example.org
