Enterprising Limpsfield to create new community hub at The Bull


When Sue Dickens, owner of Limpsfield’s The Bull Inn for the past eleven years, decided to pursue new opportunities and put the building up for sale, a local group of community-minded individuals decided to get involved to create a new, exciting vision at the heart of Limpsfield.


The vision

Forming Enterprising Limpsfield Ltd, they developed a business plan aimed at building on The Bull’s legacy for quality local independent food and drink, housed within this much-loved, historic building. Going forward they will collaborate locally, hosting community-focused niche events, workshops and celebrations as a community pub/hub.

It was always envisaged that this business would be accessible to as many locals as possible, whether providing an investment opportunity, promoting entrepreneurship, enabling local supply chains or creating jobs – to maximise local inward investment and community participation.

Enterprising Limpsfield is currently raising investment to realise the business plan to buy and renovate The Bull, breathing new life into this landmark building that has played an integral part in Limpsfield life for hundreds of years, creating a new and unique venue to eat, drink, play and even work.


The investment opportunity

Enterprising Limpsfield has now opened this tax-efficient investment opportunity to the community, seeking to attract a wide range of investors, across all ages and walks of life.

The business is equally keen to hear from anyone wishing to get involved as a supplier, entrepreneur with any complementary business idea, or to join the operational team. Everyone is very welcome to the launch in late summer/early autumn and updates will be posted on the Facebook page and website.

Enterprising Limpsfield has been set up as a fully functioning, audited and accountable Limited company. The investment is privately hosted by FCA-regulated investment platform, Growthdeck, who have agreed to undertake this on a small fixed-fee basis, as a gesture of support for the vision.

Shares in the business are available to purchase from £500, with a limited number of shares available to younger people (under 30) at £100 each, to encourage inter-generational participation and long-term sustainability.

Enterprising Limpsfield Ltd is a business with the additional advantage of having received HMRC Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) advance assurance for the business plan. This offers benefits to tax-paying prospective investors, including income tax, capital gains tax and loss relief, as well as inheritance planning benefits.
