The Minstead Community Shop Working Group would like to thank everyone who attended yesterday’s public meeting in the Hall.  There were over 60 people present which gave a good deal of confidence to this small team of volunteers that the Community continues to support a scheme for a new shop. There were lots of positive suggestions and ideas which the Working Group will take forward for consideration at its future meetings.

The Working Group will keep you up to date with how it is progressing and call a further public meeting when it feels this is necessary.

Meanwhile, if you have any further proposals or other constructive ideas then please send these to



A new Social Enterprise at Minstead Church will be open on Thursday 22nd November between 2 and 4pm.  We hope this will become a valued meeting place for members of the community and visitors to the church. You are invited to come and bring your friends! Contact Isabel Yeo 023 8028 2724 for details and if you would like to support this initiative.
