Second Community Share Offer


In 2018 we raised £129,000 from our first Community Share Offer.  This allowed us to buy Wickham Market’s historic George Pub and commence the development work necessary to complete detailed surveys and designs and obtain Planning Permission. In December 2021 we were notified that we have been awarded a further £988,200 from The National Lottery Heritage Fund.

This second Share Offer will enable us to complete the final phase to rebuild and restore The George and breathe new life into a wonderful community owned pub.  We require £340,000 to complete our funding.

Local Investor Incentive

Investors living in Wickham Market are also able to obtain a ‘Local Investor’ window sticker as the first £50,000 of share investment received from you will be matched pound for pound under the Community Share Booster Programme.  The funding for this has been provided by The Architectural Heritage Fund, supporters of the George project since its earliest days.

Tax Relief

We have obtained Advance Assurance from HM Revenue & Customs that individual UK tax payers will be able to claim 30% tax relief on their investment, provided certain conditions are met.
