This is a fantastic new video on Stockwood CBS, produced by the inspiring people over at CommunityShares.org.uk, in conjunction with local community champions Locality, co-operative champions Co-operatives UK and Department for Communities and Local Government.
Also thanks to the makers over at Seal Films in Manchester. What an achievement!
Thinking of starting your own community shares programme? Do it! In the wise words of one of our founding members Sebastian Parsons:
“My advice to someone that wants to do a community share offer is, yes, you will be able to do it. It will take time, but it’s manageable. There are people around. Talk to them. Don’t try do it on your own, but do try and do it, because it’s just a better way.”
