The next phase of the campaign to secure the future of the Tally Ho is finally here. The share offer to raise the funds to buy and re-open the Tally Ho was launched on 1st May. There’s a new, dedicated website at www.tallyhoinn.co.uk with all the details of the offer including the formal Share Prospectus and Business Plan. And the bubbling Pub-O-Meter at the bottom of every page will keep you up to date on how the share offer’s going !
The community did a great job in opposing the planning applications for the pub which eventually saw them withdrawn – now we need to pull together to buy the pub and re-open it. So please visit www.tallyhoinn.co.uk, have a good look round – particularly at the Share Prospectus – and if you’re happy, apply for some shares ! You can read the documents, fill in the application form, and transfer the money all online. If you prefer you can print out the documents, fill in the paper application form and post it with a cheque. Or you can choose any combination of paper and online that suits you !
Please don’t wait too long. The share offer closes on 15th June unless it’s fully subscribed before then. A big publicity campaign has been organised (the picture shows the current management team of Littlehempston Community Pub Ltd. being photographed for the Western Morning News) and there’s expected to be considerable interest – especially as anyone who’s a UK tax payer should be able to claim back 30% of their investment as an income tax rebate (provided they hold their shares for at least three years) under the government’s Enterprise Investment Scheme.
If you think this is an attractive offer, please let your family and friends know about it too. Just send them a link to www.tallyhoinn.co.uk. Building a network of friends and relatives will be the way that we’ll get enough of us working together to buy the Tally and re-open it!
