Opportunity for Investment
In an age of increasing urbanization, more and more local villages are flying the flag for traditional community-centered enterprises.
Queen Camel Community Land Trust (CLT) has received a significant grant from Power to Change that has enabled the purchase of the Old School in Queen Camel on 3rd May 2019. It has saved this unique property from an uncertain future to provide community facilities and workspace.
We now invite YOU to be a part of its future by becoming a shareholder and joining us in realising our vision for this unique resource to secure the long-term health of our area. We want our local rural economy to thrive and our community to access support, be inspired and make or deepen local friendships. We aim to draw life and vitality, jobs and activity into our midst but above all to provide services that help those with any kind of need across all ages.
Investing in community shares is a great way of supporting our community venture that serves a community purpose. Your money will make a difference and you will have a say in how the CLT is run to benefit our rural community.
