Bledington launches Community Share Offer for shop and cafe

Over the last six years Bledington residents have been raising funds to build a new community shop and café.  More than £190,000 had been raised by March 2018.  Now Bledington has launched a Community Share Offer to raise the last £50,000 they need before building work can begin.  If successful, they hope to have the new shop and café open by Christmas.  

The Community Share Offer is open until 6th May 2018.  You can find out more about it here.  For a potted history of the Community Shop and Café project, click here.

GRCC can offer advice and support to community groups looking to preserve an existing community asset - like a shop or pub - or to set up a new one.  Find out about how we can help you here.
