A COMMUNITY village shop run by volunteers is to hold a talking shop to drum up support and come up with new ideas for the future direction of the shop.
A meeting to discuss Marchington Village Shop will take place on Thursday, July 3 at 7.30pm at Marchington Village Hall.
Liz Morgan, of the village shop board, said: “We are now over halfway to paying off the loans we took out to re-open the shop in November 2010 and we are facing some important decisions for the shop’s future.
“We now need to generate more business or we need to cut our costs in some way and are looking to consult with our stakeholders to decide on what should be the next step.
“We want to know what villagers want from their shop and we’re inviting everyone to feedback.
“The shop has been very successful and it’s a very valuable asset for a village to have. It’s completely run by volunteers and is open all week.”
