It’s official, come and support us on this exciting new chapter in October Books story. With your support we are organising the purchase of an old bank building in Portswood with the idea of creating a community hub in the space, so we can truly say we are ‘more than just a bookshop’.

This new venture will help to secure the long-term future of the shop as we will no longer be paying out excessive amounts in rent and it will be amazing for you all to support us in this venture. At this stage, we are announcing the offer of Loanstock Issue 2018 which will run from today 9th March to 31st May 2018. We do need a significant proportion (£152,000) of the funds in place by 23rd March, so if you have already pledged funds, now is the time to make your application to purchase loanstock. The Loanstock offer documents can be downloaded and completed and returned to us at the shop or to info@octoberbooks.org with LOANSTOCK in the subject line.

Download the loanstock offer documents:

The documents contain information about loanstock, our current financial position and some information on long-term business and financial plans. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need further information. The initial issue of loanstock certificates will be on the 21st March 2018.

Our most recent Annual Accounts and Report can be downloaded here. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Membership Application

Membership application documents can be downloaded here.

Members will have a vote at Members’ Meetings and be able to stand for the Management Committee. You do not have to be a Member to buy loanstock and you do not need to buy loanstock to become a Member. Membership is a one-off purchase of a £5 share which is non-redeemable, non-transferable and becomes void if you cease to be a Member.

We look forward to seeing you soon and co-creating a new story for October Books.
