Save The King Willy Pub Update
Meeting Thurs 12th October 2017
Village Hall 7.30pm

The 6th June 2017 Village Hall meeting has resulted in pledges totallling £100,000, a third of the way to the total of £300,000 needed to save the King William IV pub from closure and redevelopment.

The Parish Council has applied for and been granted a six month moratorium on the pub as an Asset of Community Value (ACV).
Unfortunately £100,00 is still a fair way short of the target.

If the bid to save the King Willy is to be viable more more interest is needed from the community. If everyone who has already pledged could go out and find three more people to pledge then the target would be reached.
Come to a meeting in the Village Hall on Thursday 12th October at 7.30pm. Please come and show your support or just to find out what it is all about. Please don't let our pub fall victim to the planners.

The pub could be used for so many more things, meetings, parties, Hikers' lunches, Pensioners' lunches, there is a need for meals on wheels in the village. They could be provided from the pub. It is the home of the traditional Ashen Faggot ceremony on January 5th every year. We would not want this centuries old tradition to be lost if the pub should close. It is a valuable asset and could be used far more than it is at the moment.

With more housing being built in the village and more planned it is bound to be viable, but only with your support. Once it has gone it has gone, we won't get it back..
