We're continuing to raise more funds and your support is vital.
Someone amongst us has taken the bold step of making their feelings known regarding a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) by placing stickers around the village.
The Management Committee will present a report on options available and their recommendation on the way forward.
A Special Members Meeting has been called for 30/1/2019. We'll be giving an update and providing information shareholders will find useful in an upcoming vote.
Shareholders will by now be aware that we recently reduced our offer on the pub to a more realistic value. This post will explain some of the background that led to that decision and give details of the latest offer.
November is here and we're still closing in on a final deal for the purchase of The Crown.
The buildings survey has been completed. Solicitors are in full document-scrutiny mode. As we head to exchange & completion we're launching our loan scheme.
The team and I have been trying to get this update out to you all for a while now. Why has it taken so long? Read on to find out.
Our next public meeting will be at Northwold Sports and Social Club.
We offered more than the pub is worth but were still turned down. Why is that? Do you think the owners have a better offer?
If you've made a pledge and not yet deposited the funds - please get your skates on and, quite literally, hand over the money. We'd like to make an offer to Dave & Cheryl as soon as possible.
There is still a *large* sum to collect from pledgers who may yet increase the amounts they spend like so many of you already have.
Northwold, you have a limited amount of time remaining to buy shares so don't leave it too late. On the 28th June we will be making an offer to Dave & Cheryl with the funds we have raised.
There's more to a pub than being a plain ol' drinking hole full of old men going on about the races.
Below is a small chart showing the progress made towards reaching our goal. If you haven't yet converted your pledge to a purchase please do so as soon as possible. You can pay by BACS, cheque or cash.
I'd like to start by saying a huge WELL DONE to all of you that came along with chequebooks and purchased a fantastic £18,600 of shares on Day 1.
We're well on the way to completing our funding so now it’s the final push. We still need your support!
Assuming you're a tax payer and you intend to buy shares for our purchase of The Crown then you will be interested to know that you could pay less tax on your income
I've heard there's possibly a '*Safari Dinner*' on the cards.
This weekend we'll be providing our popup pub at Northwold Village Hall. Steering group members will be on hand all weekend to chat with you regarding the benefits of a community-owned pub and answer questions you may have about pledging and buying shares.
To save repeating myself while squashing rumours, let's just get them over with.
I'd like to thank all of the committee, volunteers and customers that have made the past few weekends - which have been immensely hard work - worthwhile.
A taste of things to come. Please book early.
Today we submitted our bid to the owners of The Crown Inn. How much did we bid? Read on.
It is a place for celebration, commiseration, to remember, to go to forget, to meet others, to talk and discuss. It is a community space.
