The Share Offer aims to bring land and buildings constructed in the 1870s by the pioneering educator and philanthropist, Sarah Fielden into community ownership. If successful it will secure two homes at affordable rents, safeguard an important piece of heritage and protect the future of the beautiful Fielden Hall as a thriving community centre.
Investment is in Community Shares which are targeting 2% annual interest, with first interest payments available in 2023, and can be withdrawn from 2024.
As with shares in companies, community shares are a form of risk capital. They are not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, so if the enterprise fails, investors can lose some or all of their money.
