BARCOMBE STORES: Barcombe will lose its general stores and post office unless we, the community, can find a solution. The parish council is happy to front a rescue package, but ultimately the financing and operation of the business must be managed by an independent body.

We welcome anyone who can contribute. In the first instance we propose shares starting at £500. There will be a presentation on the options, followed by a discussion.
