FOR the community, BY the community
NOT ‘Just Another Charity shop……’
North Walsham Community Shop is owned, managed and run by its 5 trustees and a team of 15 fantastic volunteers including occasional work experience students from Paston College. Located in the centre of North Walsham, Norfolk, its doors first opened in January 2018.
In September 2020 the shop moved to 16b Church Street and 1 Market Place became the Community Fridge, where food unwanted by supermarkets is given away to anyone who wants it.
The shop works with the community by selling unwanted items to fund a wide variety of North Walsham based projects. It provides a home for North Walsham’s Community Fridge and also acts as a mini-community hub to promote local groups.
“I can only praise the brilliant team at North Walsham Community Shop, and I urge local people to support this great initiative!” Norman Lamb MP
