About the project

On these pages we set out some of the background to the project to establish a Community Shop and Cafe in Frittenden.

Sean and Rosie Croucher’s pop-up shop in the Bell & Jorrocks has provided some invaluable insight into the likely demand, albeit during the pandemic. Nevertheless as we all learn to live in a different way the attraction of a local shop run by the community for the community is apparent.

Much research work had been done pre-lockdown both independently and with the Plunkett Foundation. Their advice on how best to set up a Community Enterprise has enabled us to move forwards quickly.

We hope that any questions that you have will be answered on these pages or in the FAQs. If not please do speak to a member of the team or contact us using the response form or email us using info@frittendenstores.co.uk
