As a family we have been in the village for nearly 35 years, and the shop has been a mainstay for all that time. I don’t know who is on the ‘committee’ but I have heard that the person who was turned down due to ‘lack of retail experience’ has run his own business for many years – is it not that understanding of business that matters? And this is a village shop, not Sainsburys. I am a long-standing shareholder and we need an EGM to discuss the future of the shop, and the actions of the committee to date.
