In order to buy The George, we launched a highly successful community share offer in March 2019 which raised nearly £150,000 and attracted a wide range of investors from Newnham and from further afield. With additional money from grants, social investment loans and fundraising, we went on to make an offer of £350,000 for the building in the summer of last year.
Although we have not yet succeeded in buying The George, and our plans are currently put on hold as result of the Coronavirus pandemic, we are determined to see it one day being used and enjoyed by the local community.
