Following the closure of the only shop in the area in 2002, the community voted to take on and run the shop itself. The shop was set up as a co-operative and residents were invited to buy shares at £50 each – from a population of 200 there are 147 shareholders and over £10,000 was raised. The shop has become a successful business, run by a manager, 4 part-time staff and 4 after-school helpers.
