We can confirm we made the minimum investment value, with over £50,000 of share funds already cleared. As importantly, we smashed our 300 shareholder target, with 396 different shareholders.

We’re planning an opening date of Friday 15th November.

We can now confirm we also qualify for the share booster scheme, who now only need to invest less than £10,000.

On behalf of the Directors of the Society, we thank you all.
