FREE Community Retail Seminar
Friday 20th November 2015, Clifton Smith Village Hall from 2.30pm to 5.00pm (booking is essential)
Rural Action Derbyshire is running a FREE Seminar to help communities that lack a village shop or at risk of losing an existing village shop.
The Village SOS campaign aims to help communities support each other and share experiences to set up a social enterprise. The seminar will explain how communities can find a solution to address the village shop issue.
Across the country communities are increasingly coming together to find ways to restore or rescue much-needed services services such as shops, pubs, libraries etc. Many talented communities are meeting the demand for services by creating viable community-owned-and-run businesses that are called social enterprises.
This FREE Seminar will:
- Explain how VSOS can help in the development of a community social enterprise
- Present the 'Speedy Shop' solution - Peter Fox, CEO VillageVending
- Visit Clifton's own 'Speedy Shop' at the Cock Inn
- Hear how a community shop was established at Grindleford - Sarah Battarbee
- Look at potential ways to establish a community-owned enterprise.
