King William Public meeting 6 June - more information

Home » Latest News » King William prospectus

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.
