The Committee hope you will have seen the special eNewsletter announcing that the Community Shop Share Sale met its minimum target of £25,000 on 30 September.  Thank you to everybody who has bought shares.  It is pleasing that people are continuing to buy shares.  The total raised is now £26,675 on 4 October.  But that’s no reason not to buy shares if you haven’t bought any yet as we want as many members as possible to make this a genuine community project.  The minimum share purchase is only £25, so please join now.
