We provide Kingsdon villagers (and visitors) with shopping essentials and a place to meet. We have recently undertaken a refurbishment and are now sited in the main schoolroom. This will allow us to expand the range of goods and services we can offer.


Shop Floral Display Sponsors Welcome A new addition to the collection of Hydrangeas at Kingsdon Community Shop is this Hydrangea macrophylla 'Blue Ball' (BLACK STEEL) which was kindly sponsored by a generous Kingsdon resident. If anyone else would like to sponsor a flower / shrub for our floral display this year Wally would love to hear from you.


Take a look around.  We now offer a wide range of groceries, essential household goods, beers, ciders, wine soft drinks and locally sourced bread, cakes, meat, eggs, milk and cheese and much more. Newspapers can be supplied by order.

   


We are also the home of the Kingsdon Knitting Club and hold:

  • Social meetings
  • Monthly cream tea or toasted teacake events in the summer
  • Pimms Saturdays

Children are welcome to use the basketball net (ball available) and we encourage use of the outside space for its original purpose as a playground. If parking your car please give priority to children.

Car park is for working volunteers, customers & deliveries - all other parking is by prior arrangement with the Shop Manager or committee"

The shop building is leased from Somerset County Council, presently for a peppercorn rent. We would like to thank the following for their financial support for the refurbishment in the last year: The Plunkett Foundation, South Somerset District Council, Somerset County Council, the Kingsdon Jubilee Fund (and the many individuals who have supported their fundraising),  artists who donated a share of proceeds and the Kool Katz rock and roll band.  We would also like to thank individuals who bought shares or who donated items we would otherwise have to have paid for - and everyone who worked for free!

In previous years we have also benefited from a grant from a large local employer, a donation from Cooperative Bank and a grant from Locality (Social Investment Business). Kingsdon Parish Council match-funded a small grant from SSDC in 2014 which together with a grant from Somerset Community Foundation (Perry's recycling) helped to get us off the ground.

We are an Industrial and Provident Society for the Benefit of the Community (a mutual) so we are run by our Members.
