The Shop and Cafe at Crowle was opened in October 2018 and is a community enterprise – created and owned by the community, run by enthusiastic and committed volunteers who aim to provide a warm welcome to everyone… not just ‘locals’ but all visitors such as walkers, cyclists, tradespeople and others who may be just passing through.
As well as offering exciting local products and ‘convenience’ top-up shopping, the Shop and Café are a focal point for the community – a great place to meet friends and chat.
All this available 7 days a week with free car parking and wi-fi.
The Shop at Crowle has been selected as a Midlands Regional Finalist for the Countryside Alliance’s “Rural Oscars” in the Village Shop/Post Office Category
The Shop at Crowle was selected as a finalist for the Plunkett Foundation’s 2019 Rural Community Business Awards in the category of ‘Investing in Local People’!
