Be a shareholder

As a Registered Society the shop will be owned by the community and any profit from the shop not required to be re-invested in the business will be put back into the community.

The purchase of shares gives members a right to vote in decisions regarding the management of the shop and each member will have one vote irrespective of how many shares are held.

Shareholders are issued with one membership share for every £10 subscribed (minimum subscription one share). 

If you want to be involved as a shareholder - please read our original Share Prospectus (this document is currently under review and will be re-published shortly) and complete a Share Application Form.

You can apply for membership of Clapham Community Shop Ltd whether you live in the village or feel an association with the village through friends, the church, the school, local businesses, or if you are just a Clapham ‘well-wisher’. Every penny raised represents a direct investment in the business and helps to ensure the shop’s continued success.

Be a volunteer

We are always happy to welcome new volunteers - just let us know what you're interested in doing and how much time you have to offer.  

You can do as many or as few shifts as you want, whether that’s once a week or once a month, it can be as often as you like.

No previous experience is necessary as training will be provided. All that’s required is lots of enthusiasm, a good sense of humour, a few spare hours and the willingness to offer a warm welcome to all our customers.

As one of our volunteers says:

"I have felt much more part of the village since volunteering at the shop. We have lived in Clapham for nearly 50 years and the opening of the shop is the best thing that has happened in that time."

If you want to be involved - contact Helen - the manager by email, phone or in person.
