Latest News


We can confirm we made the minimum investment value, with over £50,000 of share funds already cleared. As importantly, we smashed our 300 shareholder target, with 396 different shareholders.

We’re planning an opening date of Friday 15th November.

We can now confirm we also qualify for the share booster scheme, who now only need to invest less than £10,000.

On behalf of the Directors of the Society, we thank you all.

Share Booster funding for The Village Green

The Board of Marsden Grocery Community Benefit Society are absolutely delighted to announce that we have been successful in securing equity investment from the Community Shares Booster Programme. This is fantastic news and means we can confirm we are able to go ahead with all our plans for The Village Green.

But our share offer is not over yet and won't be until midnight, Monday 4 November! So the next few days are the last chance for people to become member of the cooperative and invest in its future.

Cuckoo's Nest Grant

Great News! Marsden's own, fantastic, Cuckoo's Nest have given us £1,950 towards the refitting of the new cooperative shop.

We're so grateful. Thank you!
