Thanks to the incredible support we have received from around the world we are now on our journey to buy the Gun Inn.
THIS PAGE WILL KEEP YOU UPDATED WITH OUR PROGRESS
March 16th 2020
Thank you to everyone who has paid for their community shares - genuinely appreciated! To the few remaining can we PLEASE ask that you make payment asap.
Conveyancing for the purchase of The Gun is well underway and we continue to make plans for refurbishment.
MARCH 3rd 2020
FINALLY! We now have card facilities - please see the Payments page!
Feb 26th 2020
Once again the wheels of commerce move very slowly and its never as simple as it should be. Still awaiting the correct set up for card payments. We would urge that if you can do a bank transfer please do - it is also much cheaper for us.
Feb 20th 2020
We hope to have card facilities available on Monday - we will send an email out to confirm. Thank you very much for everyones patience.

The Paypal link is still not working - please bear with us!
Feb 6th 2020
We seem to be having an issue with payments via the Paypal link. Apologies - we are contacting Paypal to get this fixed.
January 30th 2020
Today we have emailed everyone who kindly pledged and offered donations, asking for the money! Lets buy a pub!

Bank Account Open
Just heard that our Share Documents have now been awarded the Community Standard mark so we are just making the final changes.
We plan to ask for pledged money this week...at last!
JANUARY 21st 2020
We have finally received word that our bank account will be open within 48 hours - progress!!
JANUARY 11th 2020
It seems that each step holds up the next one...!
Although applied for in good time, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) registration only completed end of December. This meant we could finally apply for a bank account and this - we are assured - is being fast tracked, but of course Christmas and New Year holidays have delayed it.
Once we have the bank account details we will also need a PayPal account so that pledges can be accepted via card payments as well as bank transfers.
Meanwhile, as best practice dictates, our Share Documents offer is being appraised by The Plunkett Foundation to receive an approval stamp.
Once these steps are completed we will email the official Share Docs and ask for the pledges to be paid.
Our steering group is busy with refurbishment planning so that once the Gun Inn is purchased we can immediately proceed with improvements.
THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND PATIENCE
