Coigach Community CIC’s bond offer is now open!  If you would like further information please go to        www.triodoscrowdfunding.co.uk/invest/coigach-community  for all the details of how to invest.IMG_3344 

The offer will be promoted widely from mid March, but in the meantime you have a head start! Of course you can invest at any time up until the offer closes on 30th April subject to availability. The bond offer document is available immediately online at www.triodoscrowdfunding.co.uk/invest/coigach-community and there will be printed copies available soon. If you require a printed copy please contact info@coigachcommunity.org.uk, phone Julia Campbell 01854 622 379 or pick one up at Coigach Community Hall, Achiltibuie Stores or The New Broom in Ullapool.

 

You should ensure you read the Offer Document in full, including the section on key risks, before deciding whether to invest in the bonds. Investing in the bonds is not the same as depositing money in a bank account as your capital is at risk and you may not get back the full amount that you invested. An investment in the bonds is not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.

Invest in Coigach! Bond offer coming soon..

We’ll shortly have an offer document available for our forthcoming bond offer with Triodos Bank.  We’d like to give you (as a visitor to our website!) advance notice of this exciting opportunity – to make a long term investment – and to support Coigach’s turbine.
Plans are underway to re-finance Coigach’s community wind turbine with the help of Triodos Bank. Triodos is one of the world’s leading sustainable banks and their mission is make money work for positive social, environment and cultural change. The re-financing (at lower rates than our present loan) means more money for the community!
Representatives of Triodos (based in Bristol) have visited Coigach and having seen the turbine in action (and studied the figures of course) will shortly be promoting our bonds to investors. With a track record of providing financial support and lending to pioneering community projects and other ventures that fit with their ethos, they already have a large base of potential supporters and investors.

Coigach’s bond offer will be launched by at the end of February (probably Monday 26th but tbc) and although it will be available to anyone glancing at their website, it will not be promoted to the big wide world for two weeks. This gives people in Coigach, the Coigach diaspora, and anyone reading this a fortnight’s head start!
Triodos will be filming in Coigach on Saturday 10th February – to showcase the people and places that make it special. If you’re out and about wear your best bobbly hat – and wave cheerily at the drone!
Full details of the bond offer will be in the document, which, if you are considering investing,  you should read in full.  In the meantime, we’ve added some Frequently Asked Questions …and the answers here:  Bond FAQ
Once it’s available, we’ll publicise the offer document on social media (Coigach Community Development Company on Facebook, @coigachcdc on Twitter) or you can request notification by contacting info@coigachcommunity.org.uk.

Saturday 25th November

From 2pm… Open Day at Coigach Community Hall with tours up to (and into) Coigach’s Community Wind Turbine and Ben Mor Hydro. Transport provided as parking at the hydro project (at Acheninver) is limited – though it’s a pleasant walk down the Acheninver Burn if you’re feeling energetic! We’ll also have a display of information and photos (at the hall) and directors of CCDC, Coigach Community CIC and Coigach Wind Power Ltd will be on hand to chat about the project. Refreshments at the hall – and a hot bowl of soup on your return from the tour.

This will be followed by more food, and a ceilidh in the hall. Come along and join in – bring your instruments, your dancing shoes and chiefly yourselves!

If you would like to come to the open day and/or the ceilidh please email info@coigachcommunity.org.uk or phone or speak to Julia Campbell 01854 622 379 to let us know you’re coming and so we know how much food to make, and for transport.

Schoolhouse Open Day

Up with the bunting – local folk are joined by staff and board members of Highland Small Communities Housing Trust, Neil Moir representing the Scottish Government, and invited guests to celebrate the completion. There were a few more minor jobs to be done and then the tenants moved in shortly afterwards and are now happily ensconced.

Thanks to all for coming, and especially to HSCHT for all their support, and to funders: Highlands and Islands Enterprise, Scottish Government’s Rural Housing Fund, The Highland Council and The Nationwide Foundation.
