We have completely sold out!

Our initial aim, in December 2018 was to offer 6000 shares raising £300,000 towards the refurbishment  of the Royal Oak. The fantastic news is all of these shares have been taken and we have been able to rebuild, refurbish and reopen the pub as planned. Then to comply with the government directive to close pubs and restaurants we have had to furlough staff and mothball the pub. Sadly it was the only option available to us as we do not have any cash reserves to risk making losses and experiment with any other type of trading. We have had to preserve the little cash that we have. The closure is draining that cash each month and we do not know when we can reopen but we are determined to be in a position to reopen and to be able to fund the impact any social distancing measures may place upon the business. 


This supplementary share offer has been brought forward due to the Covid-19 virus pandemic which has forced the closure of all pubs & restaurants. The funds generated will greatly assist the reopening of the Royal Oak when government restrictions are lifted.


Collingham Community Pub Limited has furloughed Royal Oak staff and reduced all fixed cost payments and deferred certain payments but in mothballing the pub we still have a drain on our limited cash reserves. We need to take action now to build up cashflow to repay deferred payments and restock for what will be left of the main summer season.


We are determined to reopen and provide whatever level of service the community needs once the government restrictions are lifted. We are in a very good position to be able to practice social distancing having the restaurant, function room and garden space available. We do not know how and when everyone will want to get out once again and enjoy the good company and good hospitality we all experienced last year.
