#Prestwich “Village Green” community eco-shop wants your attention (and money…)

Cross-posted from here ;  http://www.village-greens-coop.co.uk/2013/10/21/you-can-buy-your-shares-in-village-greens-now/

We’re on the final week of our share offer and we still need more members and more money!!!

Please please please buy your shares NOW and help achieve the financial target needed to create Village Greens together before the 2nd December 2013

We are asking everyone to spread the word by telling at least 3 new people about Village Greens, asking them to like us on Facebook and Twitter and inviting them to come along to our last drop in session this Wednesday 27th November at The Parkside Pub, Bury Old Rd between 7-8.30pm.  Come and buy shares, find out more about the co-op and ask us your questions.

What about giving a share as a Christmas pressie to someone who would really appreciate  shopping in Village Greens?  Just get in touch and we will show you how this can be done.

Or if you really want to invest but need a little more time then pledge now and talk to us about payment options.

We are here to help, just email or call us any time; come and see us at The Parkside on Wednesday and look out for us at the events we will be attending this week + we will be around Prestwich village as much as we can too.

Where we will be:

St Monicas Xmas Fair – Thurs 28th Nov 6.30-8pm

St Mary’s Fair – Sat 30th Nov 10-1pm

Park View Xmas Fair – Sat 30th Nov 12-3pm

Prestwich Food Fest – Sat 1st December 10-3.30pm

Fresh          Local          Organic          Affordable

Amazing 50% tax relief incentive too!

Did you know you may be eligible for 50% tax relief on your investment under the government Seed Enterprise Initiative Scheme (SEIS). Wow how amazing is that! We have advanced assurance from HMRC that the Community Share Offer for Village Greens is eligible, so as a tax payer you may be able to apply for half the value of your share offer on your tax return.  That means that if you invest £200 you may get £100 as 50% tax relief!  How often do we get something back from the tax man!  Read more on our full Share Document Although we can not give guaranteed financial advice unless you have a complicated tax set up it there should not be any reason why you are not eligible, but you may wish to seek financial advice.

Apply to invest here NOW – there are only a few days left and we need to raise £120,000 from as many members as we can !!!

Please, complete this form and make your investment by bank transfer, ensuring you state your name as the reference to: sort code 30 95 42 and account no 57912060; all by the 2nd December 2013.
