Set back from the road, overlooking part of the common, Dunsfold village shop has a lovely, old fashioned look and feel to it.
The shop has been owned by the local community since 2011. As a community enterprise, they feel it is important to support the community in as many ways as possible. One of the main ways is to employ local people. They currently have 5 local members of staff who work in the shop, and students who join them on their university breaks.
It is a popular stop-off for cyclists, who can enjoy a sandwich and a bar of Horsham Gingerbread!
