A New Village shop for Ilmington

We haven't had a shop in Ilmington for a couple of years but, later this year, hopefully, in April a new village shop will open in Ilmington.  It has been organised by a group of people in the village so, although there will be a paid manager, it is a Community Shop which will be staffed by volunteers.  It is to be sited in the building which was the Catholic Church of St Philips on the Upper Green.  This went 'out of service' due to falling numbers.  Later, a cafe will open in the same building.
