SouthGen, the charitable community benefit society that partnered with Hastoe Housing Association to buy back the Southwold Hospital after the NHS closed it, is throwing a “People’s Party” to celebrate the launch of its community share offer. The party is on 11 May at the Sports Pavilion, Southwold Common, from 5 to 9 pm.  Food, fun, music, and, weather permitting, an amazing acrobatic display by Samantha Culwick of the Aerial Circus, AND a film about the Old Hospital project by a very talented local lad, Mark Hannant.  Plus the opportunity to learn about shares and even buy them.

Also, SouthGen will have a pop up shop at Spunyarns (formerly Purdys/East Coast Hospice) on Southwold High Street on May 9 and 10th, with information on community shares. 
Drop by, have a chat, pick up a share prospectus and applications.  
Share prospectuses and applications are also available at the Post Office and Library and on-line at
