Wrabness Community Shop and Café

The Wrabness Community Shop and Café is situated adjacent to Wrabness Railway Station, on the corner of Black Boy Lane. The shop is open seven days a week with a wide range of fresh produce, groceries, takeaway sandwiches, homemade cakes, cards and a craft range.

The Shop is community owned, managed by a Management Board and run by a part-time manager and many volunteers. Wrabness Community Shop offers many volunteering opportunities – in the shop, the cafe and behind the scenes. Without shareholders and volunteers we wouldn’t have a fully functioning shop and licensed café.

The shop opening hours are: Monday to Friday, 9am – 1pm and 3pm – 6pm, Saturday and Sunday 9am -1pm (+ additional hours when the cafe is open)

Radical Essex is a project re-examining the county in relation to radicalism in thought, lifestyle, politics and architecture. A programme of events will take place across Essex throughout 2016 and 2017, shedding light on the vibrant, pioneering thinking of the late 19th and 20th centuries. The project will celebrate the crucial role Essex has played in the history of British Modernism and its utopian ideologies under the themes ‘The Modernist County’ and ‘Arcadia for All’.

The Radical Essex site is designed by Fraser Muggeridge studio and Alex Rich, developed by Twelve.

Radical Essex is led by Focal Point Gallery in collaboration with Visit Essex and Firstsite. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England it forms part of the country wide Cultural Destinations programme, a partnership with VisitEngland, supporting arts organisations to work with the tourism sector to deliver projects that maximise the impact culture has on local economies.
