The Candover Valley Community Store Committee are delighted with the progress made so far towards the fundraising target.

We do still need more peopleto participate in the share membership scheme and encourage all residents in the valley and everyone who would benefit from the shop, to buy shares.  By doing this, you can help make the vision of a new community shop, post office and coffee area a reality.

We know many people are supportive and may not have made an application yet so PLEASE do this as soon as possible.  To allow as many people as possible to apply for shares the share membership scheme has been extended until JULY 31st.

The more funds we raise locally the greater the chance

We have of securing grants which is a key part of the fundraising approach
