Hi Guy. Community shares are made for community pubs, and it’s the way community pubs get bought. The best people to speak to on the journey are the Plunkett Foundation who’ve been involved in everyone of the 30-odd community owned pubs. Eventually, you’ll do a share issue to raise the capital to buy and/or renovate the pub, but before then, there’s all sorts of things around assets of community value, negotiating with existing owners, getting a survey done, getting tax breaks and working out whether you’ll have a landlord renting from you, or employing a bar manager.
