A key part of the vision for the community shop was to create a more modern and functional retail space, as well as providing the opportunity to offer a multi-purpose space on the upper floor which can be used by locals and visitors.
We have been able to proceed with our plans for a major renovation of the premises, including an extension to the rear of the property, through a number of fundraising initiatives. In addition to our successful initial share offering and donations, the society was awarded a substantial grant from the Scottish Government's Regeneration Capital Grant Fund. This award, delivered through the Scottish Borders Council, has been pivotal to allowing us to move forward with the project.
