Community Shops Fortnight Saturday 23 June - Saturday 7 July 2012

Plunkett Foundation is launching Community Shops Fortnight, which will mark the hard work, commitment and pride that ensures a community-owned shop succeeds long after the excitement of open day celebrations has passed. They are calling on community shops across the UK to join them in celebrating the incredible achievement of running a community-owned shop and to raise the profile of this increasingly growing sector. The fortnight will celebrate individual shops with the aim of inspiring other communities to save their shop through community-ownership. It will also help to raise awareness of the community shop sector further afield, using the media to reach out across the social enterprise sector and wider networks.
