Our vision is to create a community hub for residents of Detling. The Store, including a Post Office and small cafe will be close to the childrens playground on the Village Green. There will be seating outside as well as inside so residents, especially the older residents can meet, and where parents can watch their children playing. The Store will have a small meeting room, available for residents and a place where Parish, District and Country Councillors can hold surgery's.
The Store is on the Pilgrims Way from Winchester to Canterbury and we have many pilgrims, walkers ad cyclists passing who will have somewhere to stop and refuel.
We will stock mainly local produce, and as many refillable as we can.
We have one full-time manager and all other staff will be volunteers.
If we hit our target we will be able to ensure that we have the start up funds to make the project sustaina
