Why you should invest
‘So much more than a shop’
The Wigginton Village Shop will be a place to have a natter, a cup of tea with friends, and make new ones; as well as a place to shop for staples and quality local produce.
It will be at the heart of our community and will add to our village’s social scene and amenities alongside The Greyhound pub, Village Hall, Baptist Church, St Bart’s Church, St Bart's School, Pre-School, the community cafes, and other community groups and organisations.
The shop will support and champion local producers, helping them to thrive, and feed our local economy.
Once the shop is running sustainably, any profits will be ploughed back into community projects, making our village even more desirable.
‘This is a once in a generation opportunity’
Across the UK there are over 360 community run village shops serving their local communities and beyond. This is Wigginton’s ‘once in a generation opportunity' to open our own community run village shop.
'We can’t do this without you'
We need to raise a minimum of £68,000 from our local community which will be matchfunded by Big Capital Society, bringing the total to £136,000. We believe we can achieve this, but we must not be complacent. Please don’t leave it to others, as the more we raise above and beyond our minimum target, the less we need to borrow in loans.
This is our chance to play our part in establishing a community shop and create a lasting legacy for generations to come.
