Become A Member

Do you want to be part of a truly great community enterprise that is putting the heart and soul back into Stockland?

Do you want to help support an isolated rural community in the heart of East Devon?

Then please read on:

SCPL originally issued community shares in 2018, to help fund the purchase of the Kings Arms. Under current legislation, we cannot issue new shares to anyone over and above the minimum amount to cover their membership, which is £100.

At a future date, once we identify a new project, and/or we allow current shareholders to begin to withdraw their shares, new members and current members will be offered the chance to increase their shareholding, if they wish to do so.

If you want to become a member, you must agree to adhere to the Governance Rules of the Society (see below).

We anticipate allowing members to begin to withdraw shares from 2023 but we hope that all shareholders will retain at least £100 in community share capital so that they can remain members and participate in the business of the Society.
