We have been really encouraged by your positive response to the share offer. As of today we have over £34,000 towards our £50,000 minimum target. This is well ahead of what we expected.
Thank you to everyone who has taken part and shared their advice on how we can make both the share offer and the shop a success. This really is a shop by our community for our community.
Subscriptions have come from far and wide, from every corner of the village - from rich and poor! People have been incredibly generous and community spirited. About one house in seven has taken part and amounts have ranged from £10 to £7,000. Every single contribution (minimum £10) makes a real difference. We would like as many people as possible to be involved.
But we are not quite there yet - although we know that many of you plan to subscribe for this tax-efficient share offer - and have not yet returned the paperwork.
Because you have only two more weeks to get your application in, here are a few things to make your life easier:
- You can download the application form here
- Call Ben or Louise on 01608 658 464 (or Robin & Michael) if you want a hard copy or if you want us to collect your completed form
- Call Robin or Michael on 01608 658 941 if you have any questions at all about the share offer
We'll do everything we can to make sure you do not miss the share deadline of 6 May.
