April 2018 – Share Offer Launch

The granting of planning permission allows us to proceed to the next phase of the project – the raising of £200,000 to enable the new store to be built, fitted out and stocked. Along with donations and grants, we hope to raise funds through a share membership scheme which is open to all, with a minimum investment of just £20. The share scheme was launched in Preston Candover Village Hall on Thursday 26th April, at a very well attended meeting.
