Sturminster Newton-The Community Chest is One year Old!

On Friday the 29th we are going to be one year old and we would like everyone of our customers to come to shop and celebrate with us. There will be free tea and coffee and a little bit of cake so we can say a huge thank you to all of those who have helped support us through our first successful year.

We are delighted to tell you that our turnover has grown each month and we are on target to make a modest profit. That we have been able to support the Town in the ways we said. This includes;

  • Paying for the ongoing development of this web site. The Town Council paid for its original design and year 1 support, so a big thanks to them for that effort.
  • Providing employment to a number of people in our community wth learning difficulties
  • Setting up and managing the Dementia Friendly Sturminster project

There are other major projects in the pipeline which will be announced soon.

We have also set up the shareholders prospectus for the Community Benefit Society that is the ultimate ‘owner’ of the Community Chest and now have a number of shareholders who will be able to vote on how future profits should be used. Shares valued at £10.00 each are also available for sale to anyone who wants to participate in making this community project truly something owned by the Town. You can get information on all of this from Mike Woods on [email protected] Just ask Mike for details and information and he will provide
