UPDATE ON THE COMMUNITY PURCHASE OF THE KING WILLIAM IV PUB

After a successful meeting in the village hall in June we now have pledges totalling £100,000!
So we are a third of the way to our total of £300,000.

The Parish Council, on our behalf, has applied for and been granted a six month moratorium on the pub as an Asset of Community Value (ACV).

Unfortunately, we are still a fair way short of our target, so are approaching other key villagers to see if we can identify further substantial investors.

If our bid is to be viable we need to show that there is more interest from the community. If everyone who has already pledged could go out and find three more people to pledge then we may reach the target!
We have organised another meeting in the village hall on Thursday 12th October at 7.30 pm. Please come and show your support. Please don't let our pub fall victim to the planners!

It 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 !

Hope to see you on 12th October.
