The Village Shop in Poulton is a community enterprise managed and staffed by volunteers which began trading in November 2014. The shop serves passing trade as well as people in Meysey Hampton, the Ampneys, Green Acres, Betty’s Grave and Poulton.
The shop stocks a wide variety of products, including newspapers and magazines; greetings cards; stationery; snacks, medicines; confectionary; frozen food; soft drinks; household products; ice creams; wines; spirits, fresh fruit and vegetables. Our milk, bread, eggs, jams, marmalades, home-made cakes and some of the wines are from local Gloucestershire suppliers and farms.
We look forward to seeing you in the shop.
We’re looking for volunteers to join our friendly shop team

Planning Consent for the New Hub
We are delighted to be able to tell you that we have had notification from CDC that planning consent has been approved. This was our first major hurdle, and we have got past it! The next stage will be to get solid quotes for the building work and finalise the applications for funding.
We’ve embarked on an ambitious project with great support from all those of you who have pledged, and thank you for that, but the bottom line is that everyone needs to use the shop more. It would be wrong to commit to the new operation on such an uncertain basis.
The new Hub is not just a nice idea, we believe that it is an important strand of village life, and worth fighting for. We hope that you agree, and you use the shop more.
We intend to closely review sales and profitability until Easter, when we will come back to you with another update and the opportunity to agree a ‘Go / No Go’ decision on the new Hub. In the meantime, we will continue to obtain building quotes and funding, and look forward to seeing you in the shop.
If you have any thoughts or comments, please tell us using the email email@example.com.
