Draycott Community Shop is a community benefit society which is managed by trustees & funded by over 60 local shareholders within the villages of Draycott & Rodney stoke. The profits will first be used to repay the shareholders, then to help support a variety of local charities & causes.
Following the closure of our village post office, we were left with the prospect of losing our village shop. A meeting was held in June 2019 where a group of volunteers formed a steering group to look into ways to retain this vital village amenity.
Following several months of hard work & dedication the company was incorporated, funds raised via the sale of shares, long term lease secured, manager appointed & suppliers arranged; now all that remained was to completely renovate the premises!
