Houghton & Wyton Community Shop

Community projects (Social)

The shop and post office in Houghton is an essential part of the local community, offering people the chance to catch up with village life while shopping for local produce. When the former owners decided to retire, it was feared that the Grade II listed building would be bought and redeveloped as residential accommodation. However, with thanks to a community share offer, funding from charitable trust Power to Change and a loan from Triodos Bank, the villagers have been able to purchase the shop and ensure that it can continue to be a meeting place at the heart of the community.


Community projects

We intend to empower people and support the personal development of disadvantaged individuals, by financing businesses that address specific social objectives. Lending in this sector is to for and not-for-profit employment programmes, youth help centres and integration programmes, among others.
