According to recent figures released by the Campaign for Real Ale (Camra), 27 British pubs closed every week during the second half of 2015 – so The Community Shares Company and The Plunkett Foundation joined forces with Crowdfunder this week for a webinar, giving you all the information you need on community shares offers for pubs.
Both Dave Boyle (The Community Shares Co) and Nicole Hamilton (The Plunkett Foundation) spoke about their experiences, expertise and answered questions from current and potential project owners.
To support pub projects even further, the Plunkett Foundation launched More than a Pub back in April, a £3.62 million, two-year Community Pub Business Support programme, offering a comprehensive package of business development support to community groups in England.
