With the uncertainty regarding the granting of planning permission by Exmoor National Park behind us, now is the time to make a share purchase.

The share offer is still open, but only for the short period until negotiations are completed - so if you intend to join us, please leave it no longer.

Alternatively, if you have thought about supporting the acquisition of the Old Station House Inn but do not wish to buy shares, why not make a donation - all support is appreciated.
