There will be a community meeting held at William Gilpin School from 18:30 on Thursday 12th November.

Over the last 6 months, the shop has been converted in to a Community Benefit Society and has negotiated a new 7 year lease and a huge thank you needs to go to all of those who have contributed to this effort.

The shop committee will be giving more details on this progress to date and plans for the future. This includes of a scheme to enable community ownership of the Pilley Community Shop Ltd. The intention is to offer this through the purchase of a share for a donation of £10 or more with shareholders will be entitled to have a say in how the business is run.

The committee is also looking for new recruits to help the current team and are seeking to fill the role of Chairman and to appoint someone with professional financial skills as Treasurer.
