We’ve reached our community share target of £140K!
Many thanks to those of you who bought shares, volunteered, helped with publicity, came down to our Open Day events – we couldn’t have done it without you. It’s great to know that so many people share our vision for a co-operatively owned business and we’re really proud that we’ve been able to realise our ambition.
After all the excitement and activity of the last few weeks, the Directors will now focus on the paper work. The share applications are being processed and share certificates will be issued shortly.
The next phase in terms of financial planning will be to apply for the RDPE funding. The money raised in the share offer will be used to match fund and will enable us to draw down an additional 40%.
So, it’s now full steam ahead and back to the day job of bidding for contracts, looking after current clients and doing what we do best – making the best use of wood. Phil and the team are really looking forward to getting started. It’s going to be an exciting New Year.
We’ll keep you updated with developments and in the meantime, we hope you have a very Happy Christmas.
The Directors, Great Manchester TreeStation Ltd
