An inspirational session with community co-operatives
Action Hampshire staff, along with our trustee Rosalind Rutt, took part in a Rural Community Ownership event earlier in November. They heard about several community-owned businesses in Hampshire and how the Plunkett Foundation helps such organisations to get started and then flourish. Read more about a couple of Hampshire’s community entrepreneurs:
The Fox and Hounds pub in Denmead
Community-owned enterprises are all about people working together to create enterprise and generate money to solve local issues. There are community-owned shops, pubs, cafes, woodlands, bakeries… It’s a growing sector so who knows what other businesses will start up over the coming years?
If you are business-minded and want to use those skills to benefit your community then see how the Plunkett Foundation can help make your ideas a reality. We would also love to hear of your plans – please email Kevin Sawers or call 01962 857358.
