Villagers have just three days left to raise the necessary funds to bid for the post office and shop in Findon.
If successful, the post office and shop will be run as a community venture for the benefit of the village.
Anyone is invited to invest in this venture by buying a share at £1,000, which will be backed by the value of the property.
The deadline to invest is on Wednesday (June 21, 2017).
Almost 50 per cent of funds have been raised so far.
