Dover share issue

[ March 2, 2012   //   ]

Thousands of letters have been sent to homes in Dover urging residents to buy “shares” in a group that wants to take over the town’s historic port. The Dover People’s Port Trust (DPPT) has sent 55,000 letters to homes in the town urging residents to buy £10 ‘shares’ in their group. Buyers would be allowed to vote on its board but not receive a dividend.

DPPT chairman Neil Wiggins said the response to the membership offer had been enthusiastic.
