Investing in community shares is a simple, direct and engaging way of supporting businesses that serve your community. Since 2009 over 120,000 people have invested over £100m to support over 400 community businesses throughout the UK.
Many investors in community shares are first time investors. Community shares can save local shops and pubs, finance renewable energy schemes, transform community facilities, support local food growing, fund new football clubs, restore heritage buildings, and above all, build stronger, more vibrant and independent communities.
In order to proceed with the purchase of The White Horse, funding is required to assist with the early stages of the project. Hopefully, with the help of the community this can be achieved and the White Horse can return to the heart of the community. The funds to purchase the pub will be coming from a Public Works Loan Board via Church Fenton Parish Council.
At this time, only an expression of interest is required, in order to assess the amount of funds that can be raised. Please download the form below.
You will be contacted with more information when the Community Benefits Society is finally registered.
