Governance and share offer documents

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).
