Community Share Scheme Opens on Friday 7th October

  • Posted on: 15 September 2016

At last, we're officially launching our Save The Bromley Cross Share Prospectus on Friday 7th October. For a minimum of £250 you'll be able to buy a share in the Cross Inn and make a community investment, which will ensure the Cross Inn stays as a pub, and more importantly becomes a Community Hub. We have a plan to get the Post Office re-opened part-time in the back room, and ideas to make the building available for community use.


Good News From The Taxman

  • Posted on: 5 September 2016

Those of you who, have been following our progress, know that obtaining tax relief for our investors could make or break our campaign.  And we have some great news on that front.

We've spent many months working on a business plan and share prospectus, and we have just had this approved for SEIS and EIS Tax Relief by HMRC.  That means our investors can claim back either 50% or 30% of their investment from the tax man, assuming you've paid enough tax.  It works something like this.

Primrose Farm Pop Up Pub

  • Posted on: 31 July 2016

Our next Pop Up Pub is at Primrose Farm on Saturday 13th August from 5 pm.

Our bar will be in Sticklegs Brewery which recently moved to the farm, less than a mile from the Cross Inn (we were considering a pipe direct from the brewery to the pub, but are worried about the wastage when we clean out the pipes).  Primrose Pork will be supplying the barbecue, and Harwich Leading Lights Morris Dancers will be providing the entertainment at around 6:30.

Thanks to everyone who came to our Pop Up Pub music night in May and I hope everyone will come to our next Pop Up Pubs this summer.


Our next event will be a Sunday Lunchtime Pop Up Pub at Forge Cottage, opposite the Cross on Sunday July 3rd.  Please bring a picnic and the whole family. We'll supply the licenced bar from 12 noon to 3 pm and there'll be plenty of space in Steve and Linda's lovely garden.
