Every additional pound that is raised through the share offer decreases the sum that has to be borrowed from the banc or by other lending bodies in the form of more expensive borrowing terms.

Membership of Ynni Ogwen Cyf is open to individuals over 16 years old, commercial bodies, voluntary bodies and investors in the public sector.

We also accept loans without interest and gifts from individuals and bodies that would care to contribute towards financing the scheme.
