Hi John

Thank you for the lovely welcome. I'm looking forward to learning more about what you do and hopefully working together.

Sorry about the link. It's actually meant to be http://www.vinefruitscic.org. I tried posting a new link but will try again.

Many thanks

HI John

Thanks for the welcome. We are focussed on trying to maximiase financial return through our CiC, with all surpluses going back to our Charity for community economic development. We need to keep abreast of any issues that could affect us so happy to be involved.

I am particularly interested in any comment you or other members have on the Calman recommendations and how they see these proposals impacting on future regulations.

Let me know if there is anything I can do to help promote the association in Scotland.

Regards
Malcolm

Thanks for the nice welcome. The online trading space sounds good, as do the plans to raise awareness of CICs.

Our local authority doesn't recognise CICs as eligible for rate relief (as a non profit distributing organisation). Apparently about 60% do so do you have info on this e.g. how many and why. And how could we all lobby more effectively to overcome this as it is a big problem for us - we support creative incubation, in part from the supply of workspace.

Hi John,
Thank you for making me feel welcome.
I'm excited at the possibilities of Felixstowe Radio - which has just been granted an FM license by Ofcom, and look forward to the support of fellow social entrepreneurs through this site

Hello - We are a newly formed CIC, called Cibo CIC. Cibo is Italian for food and we will run a Bistro/Deli in Lowestoft, Suffolk. We are waiting to take over our premises; a long wait! The Bistro will give paid work opportunities to people with learning disabilities.
While we wait we are doing event catering - taking food to people instead of the other way round. It doesn't create enough work to be able to employ anyone, so at the mo it's just Roberto and me.
I also do accredited training through the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health - I deliver courses in Food Safety, at 3 levels and Health & Safety, at 2 levels.

Great. And please tell your members to find me on here if they want to have a chat about anything CIC related that could be in the mag or online. I'm all ears!

Great little site here John - I'm sure it'll help me make lots of contacts and spread the word of CICs in the mag.
I promise that what I see on these pages stays in these pages though, unless I contact people directly or ask permission. I'm not the Social Enterprise Sun after all!

Fundraising ain't my subject - I fail whenever I'm asked to tick boxes. Our strategy should be to crerate a business plan which says what we want, and then use that to tell the government how much is needed to kick-start us.

There should be mileage in sponsorship - with care. Right we are looking for business insurance, for printers, and broadband suppliers - who knows what we can attract as a group?
