Invest in the community shop at Woodgate, Pease Pottage.
The big day may have come and gone, but keep in touch as we’re always up to something new and exciting.
We're creating a new village shop, located in a building that has been constructed by Thakeham for the benefit of the local community.
The shop will be managed by us - the local residents, and run by the community for the benefit of the community.
Become a member and help us create a special shop at Woodgate.
Community shares are a method of raising finance used by communities across the country to save or create businesses that are important to local people. They are a form of withdrawable, non-transferable share capital uniquely available to co-operative and community benefit societies.
Shares allow open, accessible membership of the society on a one member, one vote basis – no matter how much you invest, you have the same voting rights as other members, creating a truly democratic business model.
While the initial costs of building have been covered, there are a number of overheads and other costs to cover.
We want to provide an opportunity for local people and organisations to contribute towards a community shop - for a social dividend.
Buying shares will help us staff and stock the shop with daily staples and local goods.
Get your daily staples like milk and bread.
Reduce car journeys to supermarkets and shops.
Reduce food miles by supporting local producers.
Another great place to meet neighbours and friends.
We're a registered society for the benefit of the Community. Buying shares are a long term investment that entitle you to a vote in our annual general meeting.
You can buy shares from £10 up to a maximum value of £5,000.
