Long Compton Abattoir (LCA) has served farms and consumers from Warwickshire, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and beyond since the 1920s. The announcement that this small abattoir is to close in January 2024 is a devastating blow to farmers and smallholders in the region. So, a team of local farmers and stakeholders, the Save Long Compton Abattoir Steering Group, are working hard to rescue this essential rural service.
There is significant momentum to find a solution. The Steering Group currently propose setting up a new limited company and funding the purchase of the site and business by selling shares in multiples of £1000. In excess of £3 million is needed, to be raised at pace. The Steering Group is, in the first instance, seeking expressions of interest (not your final commitment) from potential investors like you, big and small. If successful we can then progress to the next stage of negotiation.
Would you be interested in 1, 5, 10, 100 or 1000 shares?
If so, we would love to hear from you…preferably before February 5th.
