Welcome to Lodsworth Larder

Situated in the heart of The South Downs National Park.

Lodsworth Larder serving the local community since 2009.


Lodsworth Larder village shop is in the running to be named one of the best rural businesses in the UK after being shortlisted for a regional Rural Business Award.

It has been shortlisted in the Rural Social Enterprise, Charity or Community Project Of The Year category. The Larder will battle it out against fellow rural businesses, entrepreneurs and enterprises from across the region for a place at the national final.

The Rural Business Awards 2019/20, in partnership with Amazon, will mark the Awards’ fifth year of celebrating the success of businesses across the UK’s rural economy – a segment which employs in excess of 3.4 million people in over 750,000 businesses in England alone. The Awards are organised by rural business for rural business with the aim of celebrating the achievements of rural businesses and developing a strong network for rural business owners.

Speaking after being shortlisted for an award, George Wilson, Chairman of the Lodsworth Larder Management Committee, said:

“We are absolutely delighted the Lodsworth Larder has been nominated for an RBA. It is testimony to the incredible team that runs the shop. Sheri and her volunteers work tirelessly to keep the Larder at the heart of this rural community. The Larder is more than a village shop. Not only does it provides essential services for the village and surrounding areas, it also supports local businesses and suppliers, reduces social isolation and keeps an eye on our more vulnerable villagers. There is always a warm and friendly welcome to all who visit us.”

Director and Co-Founder of The Rural Business Awards, Anna Price, said: “The 2019/20 Awards have seen record numbers of entries and it’s encouraging to see so many rural businesses express a desire to celebrate their successes on a regional and national scale. We are passionate about creating a nurturing environment where rural businesses can develop, and this starts by showcasing the great work they do. On behalf of everyone at the Rural Business Awards, we want to say well done to the Lodsworth Larder, and all the shortlisted businesses, and wish them luck ahead of the regional finals.”

The Rural Business Awards is hosting a series of regional finals in the North, East, Midlands, South East, South West, Wales and Northern Ireland, throughout October and November 2019, ahead of the National Final next February.
