Farmer John Weaver, who is spearheading the campaign to buy the Long Compton abattoir site and re-open an improved facility, has given us this update:

“As well as launching the website and fundraising campaign, we have drawn up a Profit and Loss spreadsheet and the business plan is being pulled together. We have also set up a new company and opened a new Business account.  The main stumbling block at the moment is finding assistance in working out the correct business structure and finding someone who can put together the articles of association, so that we can offer shares to interested parties.  If you know of someone who can help please let me know”.

Can you help?  Please contact John on
