Time for change – the countdown is on for a new & improved village shop with a brand new community cafe.
Whilst our current shop has served us well over the last 20 years, we now find ourselves bursting at the seams and needing a little TLC. Our proposal will see our much-loved village shop expand in size & facilities to become the heart of our community! With plans for a sustainable eco section for everyday refillable products alongside a new friendly community cafe where we can all meet, share, chat and laugh with delicious food and drink.
Check out the plans below!
Designed by a local architect the shop & cafe will have one extension that will expand out to the front as well as a wrap-around extension to the right and back of the existing shop. The entrance will have a new covered walkway for those rainy days. A dedicated area outside the back will provide outdoor seating for those sunny days with a lovely view of the recreation ground!
Using different on-trend materials to create a cosy, modern, inviting environment that will make you want to come back again and again. This beautiful interior accompanied by great coffee, delicious cakes, refreshing teas & soft drinks and light lunches will provide a relaxed atmosphere where you can work, meet friends, or chill with a good book. Free WiFi and additional seating outside will make it the perfect spot for any occasion.
The entrance to the shop will remain in the same spot. You’ll enter onto the shop floor with the cafe seating area straight ahead and a brand new deli counter wrapping the whole way round towards the left. This counter will have an area for the post office & a till for the shop, as well as the cafe bar housing a barista coffee machine and delicious baked goods. In the new extension to the left there will be the eco shop full of refillable goods and to the right will be the cafe kitchen where snacks and lunches will be created. There will be an outside seating area for customers to enjoy the views of the recreation ground.
