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.

 

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. The outreach postmaster visited two mornings a week, but this sadly stopped in 2023.

 

About 30 volunteers deal with ordering, selling, admin, finance, IT and everything else. There are regular committee meetings which all volunteers are welcome to attend and an Annual General Meeting which everyone is welcome to attend.

There are occasional social events for volunteers. We are always seeking additional volunteers so if you would like to help in any way please speak to any volunteer in the shop, ring us on 07967 839382 or email rota@rackenfordshop.co.uk.
