We are always keen to have more Members. Membership provides an opportunity to become more involved in the running of the Hub and to have a say. New Members provide fresh ideas.
If you would like to subscribe, please contact Ellen t: 01722 780 998 or any member of the Management Committee, and they will arrange for you to be sent an application pack. You can subscribe for just one share or as many more as you would like to hold.

- It publishes its annual accounts to its Members;
- Shares are not transferable except on death or bankruptcy;
- Members who have held Shares for at least five years or such other period as the Management Committee decides may redeem them at par, but the Management Committee may specify a maximum total withdrawal for each financial year; all withdrawals must be funded from trading surpluses or new share capital raised from Members; and all withdrawals are at the discretion of the Management Committee having regard to CVCH’s long term interests, the need to maintain prudent reserves, and CVCH’s commitment to community benefit.
