The Post Office have a fantastic scheme called Rural Restart which we applied for on the advice of the PO Rural Transfer Adviser and we received £20,000 which was a major boost.

Winchester City Council have been extremely supportive of our Community shop. The Council has awarded us 2 grants - a Capital Grant of £20,000, subject to matched funding from the West Meon Parish Council and Community Members, and a Heritage Fund and Economic Development Unit grant of £5,000.

The South Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) has been enthusiastic supporter of our initiative. They have provided us with two grants from their Sustainable Development Fund - an initial £8,257 in 2006 and a further £10,000 in 2007.

Hampshire Association of Parish and Town Councils, an infrastructure support organisation and representative body for the 256 parish and town councils and parish meetings of Hampshire, have provided us with a £5,000 grant.

West Meon Parish Council provided us with the £10,000 matched funding element that was required from them to release the Winchester City Council Capital Grant funding. This amount will be spread over 4 years from 2006-2009.

Hampshire County Council have also contributed a sum of £2,500 through their Economic Development Unit.

We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the One Stop regional team for providing us with invaluable help providing equipment and spending a week installing it all and also helping with the Till programming. Good to have help from the experts!

BT Community Connections have provided us with a free computer and free broadband access for a year.

We received advice from the J Sainsbury layout team on store layout options.
