Community share offer exceeds target

On Wednesday 14th April at 5pm, our community share offer on Crowdfunder closed with over £90,000 having been invested by residents, friends, families of, and visitors to, Normandy. This is a fantastic achievement! We knew that there is support for our venture across the whole community, but we are overwhelmed by the support and trust you have placed in us. We will not let you down, we will do everything we can to secure the additional funding required and go on to build and run what we know will be a successful addition to the village.

We will keep you informed on our progress and look forward to serving you soon,

Best wishes

Normandy Community Shop and Cafe Management Committee

 

Bakery and Fishmonger

We wanted to create a buzz around the village and I think we’ve definitely got people talking and started to revive our community spirit.

The shop and cafe Team have invited a Fishmonger and Baker to set up every Friday to sell their delicious produce.

Our aim was to bring some products to the village even before our shop opens, with the aim of inviting the producers to become suppliers once the shop opens hopefully later this year.

As well as Brownbread supplying some of their speciality bread, we will be stocking the staple cut loaves, Gluten-Free, Allergen free bread products. We’ve had a few suggestions on some of the Freefrom products people want to see on our shelves, so thank you very much.

But there’s more to come, we are currently talking to a greengrocer, to add to our Friday morning duo. 

Social distancing is very important, so don’t forget to keep your distance, but a chat is still possible, with a neighbour, friend or someone new. If you want to find out more about the shop our Ambassadors come along every Friday at different times, you’ll see them circulating around the queues, catch their attention and ask as many questions as you like!

Inside the Shop and Cafe - Work Continues

Hopefully everyone is keeping safe during this unsettling time. The Shop and Cafe project is continuing to move forward at a fair speed even during this lockdown. We hope the our project is giving some hope for 2021 and to spread some positivity we would like to share our plans for the interior style of the Shop and Cafe. 

We are wanting to achieve a rural rustic feel to the interior and have selected a range of shop fittings in an Artisan Rustic style to achieve these. 

Please take a look at the photos of the range and let us know your thoughts.

Great news! You will shortly be able to invest ...

… in our very own Community Shop and Cafe. You will have seen the publicity around the village, on social media and in the Villager.

We now have a page devoted to information about the shop and cafe, the share issue and how you can buy shares and become involved in this fantastic development for Normandy!
