Village Shop Updates
See FoD Newsletter for update
30 September 2015
A letter to all local residents and a sheet of pie charts analysing the responses to the survey were circulated with the October edition of Focus on Darley Newsletter.
14 September 2015
A public meeting was held which was attended by around 60 people. A questionnaire had been circulated throughout the village, asking whether a shop was wanted, how often it would be used, what goods and services were preferred, how it would operate, whether individuals would be willing to contribute financially.
Helen Flynn and Angela Houseman explained the possible way forward, and the results of the questionnaire so far. The option being thoroughly investigated is to be a shop operating from the Playing Fields Pavilion, which would be set up and fitted by the community and appropriate grants, and would then be operated commercially as a small business, thus the risk would be shared.
