When much-loved owner of The Bull, Sue Dickens, decided to pursue new opportunities and put Limpsfield’s historic Bull Inn up for sale, we, a local group of community-minded individuals decided to get involved to create a new, exciting vision at the heart of Limpsfield!
an exciting new business for Limpsfield
Forming Enterprising Limpsfield Ltd, they developed a business plan aimed at building on The Bull’s legacy for quality local independent food and drink, housed within this much-loved, historic building. Going forward they will collaborate locally, hosting community-focused niche events, workshops and celebrations as a community pub/hub.
It was always envisaged that this business would be accessible to as many locals as possible, whether providing an investment opportunity, promoting entrepreneurship, enabling local supply chains or creating jobs – to maximise local inward investment and community participation.
We are really excited about this new venture and are now open to raise further investment to realise our business plan, creating a new and unique venue to eat, drink, play and even work and breathing new life into The Bull, a landmark building that has played an integral part in Limpsfield life for hundreds of years.
the investment opportunity
We have now opened this tax-efficient investment opportunity to the community, and are hoping to attract a wide range of investors, across all ages and walks of life.
Aside from investors, we are also very keen to hear from anyone wishing to get involved as a supplier, entrepreneur with any complementary business idea, or to join the operational team.
It goes without saying that everyone is very welcome to the launch in late summer/early autumn (date TBC) and updates will be posted on the new Facebook page / twitter and on this website.
about the business
Enterprising Limpsfield has been set up as a fully functioning, audited and accountable limited company. The investment is privately hosted by FCA-regulated investment platform, Growthdeck, who kindly agreed to undertake this on a small fixed-fee basis, as a gesture of support for the vision.
Shares in the business are available to purchase from £500, with a limited number of shares available to younger people (under 30) at £100 each with the aim of encouraging inter-generational involvement and long-term sustainability.
Our business has the added advantage of having received HMRC Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS)* advance assurance for the business plan. This means there are some benefits to tax-paying prospective investors, including income tax, capital gains tax and loss relief, as well as inheritance planning benefits.
