Brew­ing up com­mu­nity spirit

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - BUSINESS -

Costa Cof­fee opens soon in Great Mis­senden A COF­FEE shop chain that re­ceived a mixed re­ac­tion from vil­lagers is bring­ing four full time and two part time jobs to the vil­lage.

Costa got per­mis­sion from Chiltern Dis­trict Coun­cil last month to open the new store in High Street, Great Mis­senden.

Bry­ony Milne is the newly-ap­pointed man­ager for Great Mis­senden Costa and has worked for the com­pany for six years.

She said: “We’re look­ing for­ward to wel­com­ing new staff on board, serv­ing the lo­cal com­mu­nity and mak­ing a pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion to the vil­lage.”

The store hopes to work closely with lo­cal char­i­ties and is set to an­nounce its cho­sen char­ity part­ner this week.

As well as pro­vid­ing a to­tal of 10 jobs, Costa says its open­ing will de­liver £275,000 in in­vest­ment for the area.

How­ever, not ev­ery­one is happy. Cam­paigner Andy Tyler set-up a pe­ti­tion ti­tled Great Mis­senden Against Costa, which has at­tracted more than 400 sig­na­tures, to stop the cof­fee shop mov­ing into the for­mer site of res­tau­rant Chi­nese Cui­sine.
