23 October 2017Shares Launched!!
Saturday 21st October marked another step on the road to a community shop for the village of Creaton and the surounding communities. The Share Launch got underway at 2pm and by the time the last people went home, £17,000 had been raised! The afternoon consisted of a talk about the Business Plan and about how community shares work and there were lots of interesting questions from the audience.
Highgate House in Creaton provided the room, and tea and coffee, and there were stalls from Fleur Fields vineyard in Brixworth and Most Marvellous Baking from Northampton. When the new Creaton Village Shop opens its doors, it will be championing local produce and it was good to see and taste some of what may very well be on offer.
Shares in Creaton Village Shop will be on sale until Friday December 22nd so plenty of time to join the Society and help keep another local shop open. For more information visit the Share Prospectus page.
