Community Store at Coln


There has been a village store and bakery on this site since 1875. Coln Community Stores Ltd was formed in autumn 2012 to run the village stores and Post Office in Coln St Aldwyns.

It is an Industrial & Provident Society owned by members of the community in Hatherop, Quenington and Coln St Aldwyns in Gloucestershire.

Our Volunteers


This Community Store thrives on the support given by its local volunteers. Without them there would be no Community Store. If you have a few spare hours and would like to help, please call me or drop in for a chat.
