Firstly we have some important news!
We have extended our share issue until 30th April 2013. We have over 350 members and raised £10,700 in cash since our launch. A fantastic achievement BUT not nearly enough to start building yet. We deliberately kept shares cheap to be inclusive. But if you can afford more please do.
Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme
Because we are eligible for this amazing tax incentive anyone who is a tax payer spending a £100 or more on shares can apply for HALF of their investment back through the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme. Contact us for more details.
Some people have asked why they have bought shares but received nothing in the post. We will not issue certificates until we have enough money in the bank to start our project.
This money is kept in a separate bank account and if the pub does not open people will receive a full refund (you can read about our rules and regulations in our prospectus).
We have been targeting larger investors and supportive businesses to get them on board. If you know anyone who might be interested get in touch with us!
Fancy being part of our street team, talking to the residents of Moulsecoomb, Bevendean and Bates to tell them what they would be missing if we don’t make The Bevy a reality!
‘The Bevy’ is really so much more than a pub – it’s a sustainable building and a self-financing project, offering jobs, training and volunteer opportunities to all local people.
A community ‘hub’ where people can meet, eat, drink and relax and buck the trend of 18 pubs a week closing.
If we pull this off, it will be a beacon of what can be achieved by people doing it for themselves and turning passion into action.
So tell all your family, friends and colleagues to buy some shares and invest in something unique –together we can make the Bevendean a reality.
