Carsphairn Village Shop Ltd (CVSL)

Carsphairn's shop has been community owned since 1995 when the premises became available for purchase. In danger of losing this valuable community asset, a Community Council steering group raised the funds necessary to purchase the shop premises for the community. Carsphairn Village Shop Ltd (CVSL) was then formed to manage the premises and liaise with its tenants.
