•Mentoring and advice service for local small businesses, or display space for local producers
•Partnership with a local charity to provide a meeting space, notice board and other forms of support
•A hub or meeting space for community groups involved in local issues, such as neighbourhood planning

Sub-postmasters can find out more including how to apply on subspaceonline.co.uk. Deadline for applications is Friday 18 October 2013.
