Our Shop is a community owned village shop located on the high street with ample parking and a huge range of products, many locally sourced, and an ever changing range of wines and spirits.

About Our Shop

In 2009 the village shop and Post Office was put on the market as the then owners wished to retire. They failed to find a buyer. On the first of August 2011 the village shop, business and property, which had been run by Peter and Sue knight for some 25 years, was purchased by the village as a Community. We signed a ‘Company’ contract with Post Office Ltd. so ensuring a future for the hard won facility.

‘Our Shop’ is owned by the members of Hinton St. George and Locality Rural Community Services Limited – HRCS for short. HRCS is registered with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) as a ‘Registered Society’ for the benefit of the Local Community. Each member is a shareholder with a single voting share. Many generous members of our community purchased many shares when we launched a ‘Community Share Offer’ and others have either loaned or donated money either directly or through the Hinton St George Community Fund.

In 2008, there was a threat, originating in central government, to close the Hinton St George Post Office, a vital element of the viability of the shop. The community mounted a successful campaign, supported by our MP, to persuade the authorities to reverse their decision. Our Post Office remains as an essential part of ‘Our Shop’ today.
