Dunshalt is the first village in Fife to take its only shop into its own hands and run it as a social enterprise for the benefit of the community.
It is a project that has inspired huge support, both from local people and national organisations including, the Scottish Land Fund, the Prince’s Countryside Fund, the European LEADER Fund and the National Lottery. Together they have provided funding for us to buy the derelict village shop and renovate the building into an attractive grocery shop and community hub.
Over £31,000 has also been invested by the community who bought shares in their shop, safeguarding it for the village and ensuring that all the money it makes is put back into supporting the shop and other community projects.
