New funding received!
We are very pleased to announce that Creaton Community Benefit Society has been awarded a grant from the Prince’s Countryside Fund.

Your Shop Needs You!
We're reliant on the support and efforts of a team of volunteers to serve staff, stock shelves, clean and tidy, and make trips to the cash and carry (mileage paid). We're looking for a few more volunteers, so if you have a few hours to spare please click here for more details.
