The pub has been up for sale for a while and now the owners have have applied to the planners for "Change of Use" to a dwelling together with development of the car park.
With the full co-operation of the owners, we are attempting to mount a "Community Commercial Purchase" of the pub and car park.
Our Prospectus which can be downloaded here details our proposals and contains the following objectives:
-Preserve and develop the King William IV as a public house in Curry Rivel for the Community.
-Allow the Community to have an input on how the King William can be run.
We are holding a public meeting in the Sewers Hall on Tuesday 6th June at 20:00.
The goals of this meeting are:
-Pledge the money to purchase the Pub – 600 shares @£500
-Pledge enough volunteers to staff the Pub
-Have enough customers to keep the venture going
-Gather Feedback and Answer Questions
The pledges are vital, without community support we cannot proceed with the purchase, and the pub will be lost.
