Why do we have a shop?

The costs of running Carnival has rocketed over the last few years and without the revenue from the shop over the past 10 years, Carnival would struggle to run in its present form.


We rely on the kind donations from the public. We take good quality, general bric a brac and furniture *. We do not sell shoes or clothing as the Prospect Shop next door relies on these sales. If you wish to donate furniture, we would ask you not to deliver it to the shop, but to call to arrange for us to collect or deliver to the store on Saturday morning.

*Please note: upholstered items must have fire regulation certificate attached.


Furniture can be viewed at our Carnival and Community Store on The Salisbury Road Business Park. The store will be open for viewing on Saturday mornings from 9.30am until midday. If you are not able to view between these times, please call Carol to arrange a convenient time.

Cossor’s Book Shop

Did you know Cossor’s now has its own book shop? The book shop is situated behind the bus stop next to the Fire Station. It has a wide selection of books at very affordable prices.

The book shop is open Tue, Wed, Fri and Saturday (hours vary).

History of Cossor’s Shop

That’s a funny name? Cossor was the nickname of Clifford Goldsworthy who was a Carnival stalwart, organising Cossor’s Sale, (formerly the Butcher’s Sale) from 1948 to 1998. Cossor was also Carnival President in the 1990s.

In 2005-2006 Roger Pope decided to open a second hand shop to raise much needed funds for Carnival. Since then the shop has provided Carnival with funds to purchase our Carnival Store, support the running costs of Carnival as well as allowing us to donate to other local good causes.
