BARCOMBE STORES - LATEST
14th July 2017
ONE LAST STEP
The groundwork is done. All that's left is to gather in the funds already pledged to buy the shop and the flat above it, so securing a general store and post office for the village.
By now, everyone who so generously promised money should have received either an email or a letter from Parish Council Chairman Alan Marler. If you have not seen an email, please check your spam folder.
The email/letter contains a reminder of the sum pledged, plus two important documents. The first — ‘Your investment in Barcombe Village Shop Limited’ — gives information on your investment and on the company formed to manage the shop and flat. Please read it carefully.
You will see that to simplify administration, we ask that you contribute £1 more than pledged.
The second document is the Share and Loan Note application form. This facilitates transfer of your money. There are two options: by bank transfer or by cheque. When filling in the application form please give your name and address accurately and in capitals, as the correct information is needed to complete a share register and for the payment of interest.
We aim to have the full purchase price available by Friday 28th July, with completion by Wednesday 30th August — so time is quite tight.
Cheques should be made out to ‘Barcombe Village Shop Ltd’ and either delivered or posted to Chris Arbenz at Stepney Farmhouse, High Street, Barcombe BN8 5BB. Please also include your completed Share Application form.
If using bank transfer, please use as reference your full surname and initials and return the Share Application form to Chris Arbenz as above.
In both cases a Share Certificate and Loan Note will then be issued.
As we move towards completion, this website will detail any significant updates.
This has been a great effort by everyone. Thank you for your part in the shop/post office rescue!
