The Plunkett Foundation which provides support and advice to Community-run shops including Frensham Village Shop is organising a Community Shops Fortnight between 23rd June and 7th July. 

Sue Wicks, Chair of the management committee, has said: “We are joining with 280 other community-owned shops in a celebration of our success.  We are using the opportunity, with generous support from Plunkett Foundation, to encourage people from far and wide to come and sample a variety of locally supplied products, from cakes and cookies, ice cream, cheeses and salads, to crisps and curries.  Everyone is welcome, and once you’ve tasted these products, we’re sure you’ll want to come back for more!  And to make your visit more exciting we’re holding a raffle for a ‘Super Basket Dash’, a free prize draw for anyone spending more than £5, and a competition for children.”
