Our community has invested in a ground breaking social investment for the long term benefit of Tywardreath and the surrounding areas.
We have purchased Tywardreath Village Shop and provided the start-up capital to enable local resident Tom Larkin to start his own venture running this vital business for our rural community.
The purpose of this investment is to enable more people to start their own small ventures by collaborating with us, sharing entrepreneurial experience, financial resources and premises.
Our village shop will become a springboard for enterprising people, where they can develop their business idea, showcase their abilities and inspire others to develop their thoughts into micro businesses. Our profits will be reinvested into supporting our enterprising community.
This website was created for the benefit of our enterprising community it is regularly updated with our latest news and events.
Tywardreath is a working rural village with a thriving community. It’s a great place to visit and an even better place to live and work.
There are lots of talented, skilled and experienced people of all ages who live here and run their own small business. Not all are as visible as the shops on the main streets, many more are operating behind closed doors in the houses.
In the centre of the village there is a business retreat and incubator hub at Newhouse Farm, which is run by social entrepreneurs Trudy Thompson and Josh Taylor. Their corporate coaching business donates resources and expertise to help local people to turn their ideas into a business or an income generating community activity. In the last 2 years they have helped over 600 local people with their free coaching and shared premises.
In 2016 they started Hunter Grange Investments a groundbreaking, collaborative, social enterprise to invest in their enterprising community and improve the local economy. The company is purchasing Tywardreath shop and Elmswood House B&B with peer to peer loans pledged by local people.
