Community Fund Raising for Combe Martin

Shortly after the publication of the Economic Plan, a Charity shop in Combe Martin announced, at short notice, that it was closing. CMCCT and its partners rapidly established there was significant community support for establishing a Combe Martin Community Shop, to raise money to support Combe Martin activities and organisations.  Funding was found for refurbishment, and a Community Enterprise Organisation was created. Strong support from the community ensured a team of volunteers are available to staff the Community Shop, which has already donated substantial sums of money to the village.Special mention must be made of Martin Worth and Carole Parsons for their driving roles in the creation of the Community Shop.
