We needed to raise £95,000 to open Village Greens, and we needed you to invest by buying Community Shares. That way we have created Village Greens together, as a community co-op, owned democratically by us all as equal members regardless of the size of our individual shareholdings.
This sum is required for business set up and working capital, including refurbishment and shop fit; purchase of cold store, chilling and kitchen equipment plus stock and fixed costs within an initial 3 year trading period, including employment of staff.
We have now reached our target ensuring the venture goes ahead but our share offer is still open for new members to join. The more money we have the better we can make the store, with more and varied suppliers plus more importantly we can employ extra people to work in Village Greens!
Thanks to all the wonderful support from all our members and ambassadors that have made this happen to this point.
