What are Community Shares?
Community shares are what you will get in return for investing in Broadhempston Community Shop. They are an ideal way for communities to invest in enterprises serving a community purpose.
The opportunity to buy shares allows local people to contribute financially to our community shop, in the expectation of receiving a social dividend rather than a financial return. This social dividend will mean different things to different people, but may include:
Having a shop in the village to get daily staples – milk, bread, newspapers, and so much more.
Providing a ‘community hub’ where people can meet, make friends and exchange information.
Getting people out and about, walking around the village and bumping into friends and neighbours.
Ensuring good quality produce is available in the village, supporting local producers and reducing food miles.
Reducing car journeys to supermarkets and other shops.
Making the area a more desirable place to live and to positively affect house values.
You will be able to vote at the AGM and stand for election to the management committee if you wish to become more involved.
