The Members vote to elect the Board. The first AGM will be on October 10th 2022 where the whole Board will be up for election and then 1/3rd each year for re-election. Any member can be nominated to be on the Board.

WHAT ABOUT
OWNERSHIP OF
SPACES AND PLACES?

There will soon be the opportunity to purchase CAN HQ. A share offer will be launched which mean people can invest. The investment may come with tax benefits. A mix of Grants and social investment loans will be used to fund the purchase of the building – meaning it will be in the hands of the community for ever!

PLANS FOR THE
FUTURE

We are carrying out a feasibility study on the Co-op Furniture Store, Belvoir Road to purchase and restore the heritage frontage and become Coop Central, serving the whole community.

We also hope to take on the Hermitage Lakeside site, for the benefit of the community
