The Story of Rackenford Community Shop

The village is very proud of its community shop which is run entirely by volunteers. The Rackenford Village Shop Company was formed in 2002 to buy, restore and equip the old Church Room as a village shop and Post Office, the existing business, run from a front room, being too small to survive. The £70,000 project was financed with grants and loans, and nearly every Rackenford household subscribed to become members of the company.

 

The RVS made the building available at a below market rent. Five years later the private business was still struggling, and it was decided to run the Shop as a wholly volunteer staffed enterprise.

 

The Rackenford Community Shop has flourished since October 2007, with an outreach sub postmaster visiting two mornings a week. About 30 volunteers deal with ordering, selling, cleaning, the paperwork, the IT and everything else. There is an annual meeting for all members and anyone else interested.  

 

We are constantly looking for additional volunteers so if you would like to help in any way please speak to any of our staff or ring us on the above telephone number.
