Our community has invested in a ground breaking social investment for the long term benefit of Tywardreath and the surrounding areas.

We have purchased Tywardreath Village Shop and provided the start-up capital to enable local resident Tom Larkin to start his own venture running this vital business for our rural community.    

The purpose of this investment is to enable more people to start their own small ventures by collaborating with us, sharing entrepreneurial experience, financial resources and premises.  

Our village shop has become a springboard for enterprising people, where they can develop their business idea, showcase their abilities and inspire others to develop their thoughts into micro businesses.  Our profits are reinvested into supporting our enterprising community. 

This website was created for the benefit of our enterprising community it is regularly updated with our latest news and events.

Tywardreath is a working rural village with a thriving community. It’s a great place to visit and an even better place to live and work.

There are lots of talented, skilled and experienced people of all ages who live here and run their own small business. Not all are as visible as the shops on the main streets, many more are operating behind closed doors in the houses.   

With further investment, we can achieve even more! Click here for info

retreat (2)

In the centre of the village there is a business retreat and incubator hub at Newhouse Farm, which is run by social entrepreneurs Trudy Thompson and Josh Taylor.

Their corporate coaching business shares resources and expertise to help local people to turn their ideas into a business or an income generating community activity.  In the last 2 years they have helped over 600 local people with their free coaching and shared premises.

In 2016 they started Hunter Grange Investments a groundbreaking, collaborative, socially beneficial limited company to invest in their enterprising community and improve the local economy.  The company purchased Tywardreath shop by crowdsourcing peer to peer loans pledged by local people.

If you live locally and want to start your own venture there are business opportunities here for you. Contact us to find out more.

We just had to share this lovely pic of Joe putting himself in the centre of attention in the shop and making us all laugh with his funny observations.

Ever since Joe saw thousands of people liking and sharing our post about his story he started telling us the funniest jokes. We didn't know he was full of one liner jokes - all it took was having that positive spotlight on him to bring it out. We haven't stopped laughing since!

Today it was seeing two ducks waiting for a train at Par station, he had us all in absolute stitches!

He's now got so much confidence that as well as being the master of the stockroom in the background, he's quite now very happy working in the front of the shop, entertaining us and the customers with his funny stories while he's busy stacking shelves.
