Great support after meetings

Well things have been moving on quickly since the public meetings with applications coming in steadily! We have now sold about 80 shares and so we are progressing nicely. If you are interested in buying shares then please send your application to us at the shop – 2 St Ann’s Road and we will be delighted to process it. Once this is done we will send you a confirmatory email/letter and issue a share certificate later.

Things are also happening in the shop. We have sourced shelves which will be collected soon and installed after a lick of paint. A joiner is coming in to build us a counter and the first book order has been placed! We are now planning our opening which will be during the easter holidays – date to be confirmed. All very exciting!

So thanks for all your interest and comments. Please keep ideas and offers coming in (we have had an offer of a laptop and PC so thanks). We would love to hear from you with ideas for events and would welcome any offers to run one of these. We will update the blog again soon with news of our opening date.

    Hi all – I’ve just shared your share request on Facebook. Do you have a page there yet? It might help garner support…& would be easy to set up. Let me know if you need any help. Glad it’s going well!

      Hi Fiona
      We have really struggled to work out a good communication strategy. To my mind if you are going to use social media you need to do it well and be sure what message you are trying to convey. You also need to have things to say that interest the people likely to be looking at you Facebook/Twitter. We decided that in the initial stages of the shop we’d concentrate on the blog – and even then we have not updated it as often as we would (should) have liked. Now we are close to opening the time is probably right to expand our communications. If you have ideas for what would make a good Facebook offering (or any other social media ideas) we’d love to hear them…
