Over 140 people have invested £210,000 which has saved the Cross Inn, Great Bromley, from being lost as our village pub and will allow us to restore it as the heart of the community.

Thanks to all of you who have helped in so many ways.

Onwards and Upwards.  I think it's 115 shareholders and £154,000 invested - and I say think because we keep getting more and more shareholders.  Thank you all, you wonderful people.   Our last pop up pub at the Cross Inn is this weekend, 18th - 20th November and, to meet the terms of our share prospectus, we need to raise £210,000 so we can complete the purchase and re-open the Cross Inn, Great Bromley as a community-owned and community-run pub.

At last, we're officially launching our Save The Bromley Cross Share Prospectus on Friday 7th October. For a minimum of £250 you'll be able to buy a share in the Cross Inn and make a community investment, which will ensure the Cross Inn stays as a pub, and more importantly becomes a Community Hub. We have a plan to get the Post Office re-opened part-time in the back room, and ideas to make the building available for community use.


Good News From The Taxman

Those of you who, have been following our progress, know that obtaining tax relief for our investors could make or break our campaign.  And we have some great news on that front.

We've spent many months working on a business plan and share prospectus, and we have just had this approved for SEIS and EIS Tax Relief by HMRC.  That means our investors can claim back either 50% or 30% of their investment from the tax man, assuming you've paid enough tax.  It works something like this.
