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.


Membership is open to all residents of the community who are resident in, or whose place of employment is in the boundaries of Carsphairn Community Council . Membership costs £1 per person each year and allows members to have the right to address the AGM.

Closing date for membership to be included in the 2024 AGM is 30th December 2023.

CVSL Membership Application Forms are available in two versions. Either print, fill and post the pdf or fill in the docx and return by email.
