Minutes from the most recent board meetings are available here:
The co-operative is governed in a very democratic way with each member having one vote, irrespective of the size of their shareholding. The majority of shareholders have invested between £250 and £20,000 for A-shares under the public share offer. Around 80 people have invested between £10,000 and £75,000 under a private placement of B-shares which was only available to 'sophisticated investors' as defined in law. The B-shares are identical to the public offer A-shares in all respects, except that they are not withdrawable (as further described in Section 17 of the rules).
At the 2014 AGM, 455 members voted representing 28% of the membership. Read our news article for a flavour of the day. Read a blog, from one of our members, about the AGM: Community energy changing the landscape.
