Results of our 2018 Shop Survey

The judges scores are in, and, by and large, our members and customers are very positive about our community owned shop.

You gave us an average rating of 4.5 stars - half way between "very good" and "excellent". The key highlights of this short survey are:

  • Our pricing is "as you expected" for a village shop according to 75% of respondents, with 20% saying it is better than expected.
  • Most of our customers - more than 95% -  rely on the shop for newspapers and everyday essentials.
  • You are happy with our current opening hours
  • Just under half of our customers use the Shop once or twice a week.

We also asked for improvements our customers would like to see and what additional products we could stock. By far and away, the most requested item was to have contactless card payments. And the good news is that we will be shortly introducing a new contactless terminal for the shop.

Results of the Village Survey 2016 regarding the potential for a future village hub

The survey organisers would like to extend our thanks to all who helped distribute the survey, as well as those who participated in the Survey, whether online or by filling in the paper questionnaire. There were 72 responses in total.

There was support for developing facilities in the village, especially for a Post Office and improved public transport. A smaller majority are in favour of having a new village hall (in addition to retaining the Memorial Hall), as well as a GP surgery. Those not in favour of having a new hall expressed the preference to upgrade facilities at the existing Memorial Hall if that were possible.

We received many suggestions for improving the facilities and widening the range of activities on offer in the village. Most people wanted a larger hall space with a committee room for private hire, and improved kitchen facilities. A large number suggested different activity usage, e.g., a youth group, drama group and lunch club. Others requested better provision for indoor sports such as five-a- side football, badminton, keep fit exercise and yoga classes and gym equipment.

The next step will be to seek the support of the Parish Council and convene a village meeting. Such a meeting would give residents the opportunity to further discuss the survey results and examine what will be required to pursue and adopt potential improved facilities in the village.
