New Crofton Co-op Colliery is not structured to accept direct investment from small investors but, following a number of requests from people, we have worked with our friends at the Coalfields Community Investment Society (CCIS) to put together a suitable offer which would allow people to buy community shares in CCIS which will then invest in the mine.
The offer is open to anyone over the age of eighteen, regardless of their location. The minimum investment is £500 for a period of 5 years. The target interest rate is 6% offering a decent return to investors, and this will increase if the Bank of England base rate rises. The offer has recently been extended to 30th June 2015.
You can find out more about the offer at CCIS’s website
