OUR COMMUNITY

Village People

Eden

I live in Lazonby, but come to school in Kirkoswald. I am always hungry when I finish school, so we go to the shop for a snack to keep me going until teatime.

John

I have been walking down the hill from home to the shop every morning for over 20 years since I retired, to collect my newspaper. I don’t know what I would do if the shop wasn’t there.

Pat

I have been a volunteer since 2010. The shop is a great place for people who might otherwise be socially isolated to meet and catch up.

Phil the Postie

After a hard morning delivering post to Kirkoswald, it’s great to pop in and get some lunch: a sandwich, a drink and a snack.

Ben and Nicola

We pop into the shop to top up on essentials when we are driving about to check on our stock.

Sylvia and Jasper

I enjoy riding around the parish and I like to see people coming and going to the shop. It keeps the village alive.

Our Supporters

Thank you to all our supporters who have helped our campaign raise over £200,000 in just 7 weeks. We couldn’t have done it without you!

Our share offer is now closed but we welcome donations to support the ongoing running of the shop.
