Peopleton Community Shop on Countryfile
It’s been an exciting week for community-owned shops, with Hudswell’s The Little Shop opening creating a media frenzy everywhere from local radio stations to BBC 5Live, Kirdford Village Stores winning the Daily Telegraph’s Best Village Shop in Britain award and four community-owned shops becoming regional winners at the Countryside Alliance Awards.
And it shows no sign of slowing down; Sunday’s Countryfile episode was dedicated to celebrating 60 years of Radio 4’s The Archers, the longest-running radio drama, and to celebrate Countryfile visited a ‘real-life’ community shop in action – that of Peopleton in Worcestershire. Not only did Plunkett advise the BBC on the The Archers shop storyline, but Peopleton is their 250th shop opening!
