A Community Shop for Downderry & Seaton?

When Downderry Stores announced it was closing on 4 September 2023 a public meeting was held on 17 July when residents voted for a Steering Group of local residents to be formed to assess the viability of a community shop opening in Downderry. An important first step was to gather the views of residents on if/how they would use and/or support such a shop so a questionnaire was delivered to every household in the Deviock parish. This Survey will remain available for responses for some time to come - click below to respond.

In its first months, the Steering Group has developed its own website, Facebook and email system and a bi-monthly Newsletter , with funding from DaSRA's Community Fund. Negotiations continue to secure a potential site that could accommodate a community shop. Click here to read  the latest developments and to view a first analysis of the Survey. The October/November Newsletter will bring you up to date Click here

A range of alternative sites in Downderry have been set up to offer essentials - newspapers collections; a range of groceries: post office outreach service; Nut Tree newsletter: Paul Bray Butcher delivery. Click here to find details
