As a (relatively new)! Oxton resident I feel it would be an incredible loss to our wonderful village if we lost the village shop.
I may be way behind on this, but has there been a community meeting on whether there is a way to save it?
I hear ‘The Plunkett Foundation’ is an organisation who offers advice (grants too) for saving village shops in the UK. You hear so many good things about community run projects – could Oxton come together to look at doing similar for us and future generations of Oxton residents?
Like I say I may have missed meetings about this already, but if I have perhaps others have too?
Could we post something along these lines on myoxton and perhaps arrange a meeting at the village hall to discuss further?
