Shop wins Award

In October 2015, our shop was presented with the Village Retail Award at the Community First annual awards ceremony in Devizes.   Here is a picture of Michele Lomas, our Chairman, being presented with the award by Community First’s Vice President, William Wyldbore-Smith.

Seven years on Avebury High Street

Its hard to believe that Avebury Community Shop opened seven years ago – the years seem to have passed in a flash!

Back in 2007 the village had been hit by the closure of the local primary school, then the shop and the village post office shut early in 2008. A public meeting showed that there was great enthusiasm for a community shop, so a steering committee got together and arranged the necessary funding and permissions to launch the new Avebury Community Shop with a grand opening in March 2009.

Since then the shop has gone from strength to strength – if you haven’t visited us yet please do, and if you’re one of our regular customers and/or a volunteer then thank you for all your wonderful support – here’s to the next seven years!
