Carsphairn's shop has been community owned since 1995 when the premises became available for purchase. In danger of losing this valuable community asset, a Community Council steering group raised the funds necessary to purchase the shop premises for the community. Carsphairn Village Shop Ltd (CVSL) was then formed to manage the premises and liaise with its tenants.
Membership is open to all residents of the community (see Membership Form) and costs £1 per person each year.
If you wish to become a member and have the right to address the AGM in June, your membership must be paid by the end of our accounting period which is the 30th April.
Membership forms for the coming year will be available after the AGM.
CVSL is a Company Limited by Guarantee and registered at Companies House. The Board of management is made up of local people who are members of the company and who apply to become Directors, giving up their time for free. The Directors are the Landlords and maintain the building and liaise with the tenants.
The Directors are not paid and are not responsible for any debts incurred by the company.
