About Us

Minety, in North Wiltshire, is a thriving village: we have around 1,400 residents, several businesses, a popular primary school and many farms.
We have two pubs. We have several sporting clubs: skittles, rugby, football, even a squash court.
We have a well-established summer music festival, which brings in hundreds of visitors. We have an annual beer festival and a brilliant fireworks display every November. But we didn't have a shop... until now!
We spent more than two years fundraising and, in response to Coronavirus, we were able to set up a popup shop to help our community.
That shop is now a permanent feature of the village. Based in the committee room, in Minety Village Hall, we sell a wide range of produce and our villagers love having a shop again.

Minety Community Shop campaign

We may have a shop, but the fundraising continues. We need to raise money through selling shares and seeking donations, either to fund a new, more suitable location, or to adapt the committee room so it meets the needs of the shop AND the village hall.
Please support us. We have worked hard to come this far, and we really want the shop to remain. Let’s not allow the villages of Minety and Upper Minety to lose their shop again.

The running of our community shop is governed by our constitution, a copy of which can be found below.

Proudly supported by both 'The Prince's Countryside Fund' and 'The National Lottery - Community Fund'.
