Now Restoring This Historic Ale House!


As you are probably aware Holbrook Community Society now own The Spotted Cow and are in the process of renovating the building and its grounds to house the pub, restaurant, Spotted Calf Café and Post Office.


If the share offer passed you by or if you've found some money down the side of the sofa and want to increase your investment then download the form; we can take investments from groups so if you want to club together with friends then that's great!


Up until opening in July we are able to take new investments on the same terms as the share offer on the website.


Community shares are a new way of raising investment capital from communities. Local people are encouraged to buy shares in the enterprise and become part-owners. As shareholders they are more likely to do everything they can to ensure the success of the business by becoming loyal customers, volunteers and supporters of the enterprise. Community shares have been used to finance shops, pubs, community buildings, local food schemes, football clubs and even renewable energy initiatives.


Most community shares offers are made by enterprises registered under the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014. This legal form provides limited liability status, just like company law. But unlike companies, shares in societies are non-speculative and democratic. Holbrook Community Society is a Community Benefit Society and has been set up to purchase The Spotted Cow.


The shares you buy will make you a member of the society, with an equal vote regardless of your shareholding. Your involvement can be as much or as little as you wish. You can vote at Annual General Meetings, stand for election to the Board of Directors, volunteer skills for the refurbishment or just give The Spotted Cow your custom.


You need to be over 18 years to invest. Shares will be sold at £1 each with a minimum investment of £250. You can buy in batches of 250 shares up to a legal maximum of £100,000.


This Crowdfunder Share offer opened on Monday 23rd January and closed on Saturday 18th March
