A dynamic new community enterprise serving the people of Llangynfelyn parish, its environs, and as a 'gateway' to Ceredigion. As well as promoting the Welsh character of the area, we also provide all the basic essentials like bread, milk and newspapers, and a café with great cakes and a cheerful welcome. We have had a strong summer and the great news is that we are reaching that target regularly. We want to keep on increasing this figure, as it will enable us to reinvest in making the business even better and to contribute financially to other community projects in the future. A big thanks to everyone who has contributed to giving the business such a successful start!
The Shop has had the go-ahead to make use of the 'old shop' - the area beyond the present Caffi. It will be renovated so that we can use the main part as an extension for the Caffi (useful during the winter, and for group events) and also use part as a proper stockroom for the shop. The first steps are to clear out a lot of the stuff that's accumulated there, and to start removing a few of the old fixtures, in preparation for carpentry (putting up some partitions) and sorting out the electrics, and then a bit of decorating.

Help get Siop Cynfelyn on its feet and save money to spend at the same time!!!
You can still help us to fund the shop through our reverse credit scheme. You can do this by putting money onto the card - and then spending it when you come in to buy your groceries. This 'Reverse Credit Plan' - is a scheme that has been widely used in other community shops. We are asking people to commit to giving a minimum of £40 but it can be more.
