quality commercial awnings

 

The Benenden Community Shop is firmly at the centre of the Cranbrook community.

For a great number of local people, the shop provides an essential lifeline, for others. It is valued as a convenience which is welcome. Everyone will find something new at the shop.

A key element is that the entire business will be operated by the people for the community. The store is staffed by a professional management team, supported by loyal volunteers.

Benenden Community Shop Limited comprises of over 300 shareholders. They have invested a massive sum of £70,000.

The shop’s Shareholders are members of a Community Benefit Society under the terms of the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014.

The Shareholders vote for, and stand for election to, the Management Committee which has overall responsibility for the fantastic enterprise.

The business plan can be seen online. It shows a professional business model with solid financial viability with a conservative outlook.

The investment has supported the refit of the shop premises. Added were counters, chillers, all necessary equipment, and the purchase of initial stock.

The awnings refit was done by Deans Blinds and Awnings UK. It was a Deans Classic commercial awning. Deans say the product is available in either manual or electric format. It can be up to 12.00 meters wide wide arm extensions from 1.5 to 3.5 meters.
