Our community has invested in a ground breaking social investment for the long term benefit of Tywardreath and the surrounding areas.
We purchased Tywardreath Village Shop and funded the start-up costs, the business has created 15 jobs for local residents and buys from local businesses within a 5 mile radius and the turnover has tripled in just 11 months of trading.
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 has 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 are reinvested to improve the local economy and social wellbeing of our community.
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 heart 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 shares resources and expertise to help local people to turn their ideas into a business or an income generating community activity. In the last 3 years they have helped hundreds of residents by giving away their coaching sessions and use of their premises.
In 2016 they started Hunter Grange Investments a groundbreaking, collaborative, socially beneficial limited company to invest in their enterprising community and improve the local economy. The company purchased Tywardreath Village Shop by crowdsourcing peer to peer loans pledged by individuals and local businesses.
