Help us raise money to purchase our village shop.
STOP PRESS: The Houghton & Wyton Community Shop team are delighted to announce we have had confirmation of a £300,000 grant which is being awarded by the Big Lottery Fund, through Power to Change, in order to allow us to purchase the Houghton & Wyton Shop as a Community Shop.
Houghton and Wyton villages wish to purchase the local shop and need your help. The present owners are retiring and have expressed a desire to keep the shop in the hands of the community. But we need to raise funds and need your donations and pledges. (Pledges are the sum you wish to invest in the shop in return for a community share should we be successful).
We aim to fund the purchase of the shop and existing business through issuing Community Shares, Grants and Donations.
