The Woodgate Community Shop is the new store at Woodgate, located in a building that has been constructed by Thakeham for the benefit of the local community.
The Woodgate development is a new community on the outskirts of Pease Pottage, West Sussex and is sees the building of 619 new homes, creating a brand new community within the already well-established village of Pease Pottage that already has over 250 homes.
Those living within Woodgate and Pease Pottage have felt the inconvenience of living in a community without a shop, and the social consequences have been signiﬁcant. It was also very important to the developers of Woodgate that a shop be at the heart of their new development.
A community shop provides a place to buy essentials needed for everyday life, as well as the opportunity to meet neighbours
Many of us feel we need to create a sense of community and a way to connect with our neighbours. And have access to affordable essentials without the need to leave the local area.
The shop stocks all your everyday essentials from milk, eggs and bread to household cleaning products.
The Woodgate Community Shop is has been set up and run by a group of local residents who have given up their time to create the shop and to help build the community around Woodgate.
The committee was established in early 2021 and have worked very hard to bring to life the vision Thakeham had for the community on Woodgate. There are currently five members of the committee.
