MINSTEAD COMMUNITY SHOP
As reported in the eNewsletter of 16th September and on the Village Website (click here) a Community Shop Working Group has been formed from a few of the volunteers who put their names forward in the survey in July/August.
The Group is exploring one or two ideas on what form a future shop might take and its possible location.
The Group believes that it is reaching the stage when it would be valuable to discuss options with the Community on the next steps.
With this in mind there will be a
Public Meeting in the Hall
Saturday 17th November 2018 at 2.30pm.
Please come along to give your views on a way forward.
