Newsletter July 2018

Dear Member,

We are very happy to be sending you all our summer newsletter. We hope that you are well and enjoying this incredible summer.

Thank you for being shareholders in the buildings of our community pub in Coverdale. Without your investments we would not be able to continue to support the venture as our only income is the rent from the tenants which we use to maintain the buildings of the pub. We are very grateful to you.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at this yea/s AGM which is on Wednesday 5th September 2018, in the Coverdale Memorial Hall in Carlton at 7.30pm.

We ask that you put the date in your diary and make every effort to attend. lt is essential that the AGM is quorate of enough of our members (at least 36 members needed) in order to pass any items on the agenda that require a vote. We are anticipating that a dividend could be in the offing, so we need your presence to vote please!


We are planning to hold a buffet in the pub following the AGM, as we did last year, and a very successful social occasion it was too.

The invitation and the AGM papers including the Annual Report and accounts of the Coverdale Community Pub Ltd will be coming out in August, but please make a plan to join us. Thank you.

The Commitee still receive regular requests for advice from other community groups who are interested in making their local closed pub into a community pub, We are pleased to be able to share our experience.

We are very happy that the pub is open and is well supported by locals and visitors alike.

Further to our recent letter sent in May 2018 following the introduction of General Data Protection Regulations, you will be aware that we explained that we use your details to send you newsletters, to inform you of our decision to hold a shareholders meeting, to send any relevant papers connected to the meeting, and to send you a dividend payment should the decision be made to pay a dividend.

We are aware that some of you may have moved since last year to a new postal address or changed email address. ln order for us to ensure that information about the Coverdale Community Pub reaches you, and to be able to communicate with you as cheaply as possible, it is best for us to have a curent email address that you look at regularly as this enables us to keep stationery and postage costs down.

lf we do not have an email address for you, please consider providing us with one. However, when we send out dividend cheques, we need your correct postal address as well please!

Please can you inform John Watson our membership secretary whenever you change postal address, telephone number or email address.
