People have an extra fortnight to invest in The Fox and Goose co-operative pub in Hebden Bridge.

Nearly 200 funders have already invested more than £106,000 when the offer was due to close on Monday. Due to popular demand from supporters organisers have decided to run the share offer until midnight on Monday, August 12.

Councillor Dave Young, Chair of the Fox Friends Steering Group, said: “This is absolutely fantastic – we’re all bowled over by the way everyone has rallied round during the last few days of the campaign. This incredible response means the dream is now turning into reality.

“Now, a number of people, including quite a few Fox regulars and loyal supporters, have indicated that they were planning to invest but needed more time to apply. It’s important that as many people as possible can be a part of this wonderful community project – and we’ve still got nearly £25,000 to raise to hit the target figure – so we will be keeping the share offer running for just another two weeks.”
