Bittern Countryside Community Interest Company supports the Arnside and Silverdale AONB Partnership 
and the  Landscape Trust

To become a shareholder in the CIC you must purchase a minimum of one £10 share. Shareholders must be members of either the Landscape Trust, the AONB Partnership or other approved conservation, community, heritage or cultural body at the time the shares are issued. 

Each share purchased becomes your property and carries a single vote at meetings.

The more shares you own the more influence you have over how the Company meets its commitments and objectives.

The Company's Directors are appointed by the shareholders at the Annual General Meeting, with a third of the Directors being elected in any one year.

As a shareholder in a CIC, the company could legally pay you a dividend  - if it makes a profit and the Directors agree to pay a dividend. The amount received is restricted by the CIC Regulator to ensure that the Company acts in a proper and ethical manner towards its "community of interest" and fulfils its social and environmental obligations, rather than acting to provide a financial return for its shareholders. However we have not, as yet, paid any dividend as all our profits go towards our work in the AONB. This is unlikely to change.

If you would like to support the Company's environmental and community objectives, you should contact the Company Secretary or Chairman to discuss the options for you to be involved, either through making a donation, volunteering or becoming a shareholder.
