We Can't Wait Forever

During the last 12 months we received pledges totalling approximately £70,000. At this point almost every pledge has been turned into usable funds. Almost.


That's how much we're still waiting for.

If you've made a pledge and not yet deposited the funds - please get your skates on and, quite literally, hand over the money. Details on how to do this are at the end of this post.

We'd like to make an offer to Dave & Cheryl as soon as possible. Our offer will be based on several factors including the independent valuation of the business we had completed last year and an estimate of the funds likely to be raised. Pledges that are not honoured will obviously effect the latter and without a decent, fair offer we cannot complete on our plans.

Remember, this is about more than a pub for Northwold. A decent pub can reduce social isolation, increase the sense of belonging in a community, increase employment and help to keep the local economy buoyant. And, of course, it has a positive effect on house prices - so this is something that affects us all, whether you'll use the pub or not.

How to pay your pledge:


A cheque payable to 'Northwold & Whittington CBS Ltd' posted or delivered to
NWCBS, 28 Hythe Road, Methwold, Norfolk, IP26 4PP


Please email [email protected] to arrange collection


Funds can be transferred directly to our community account. Use your surname and postcode as the reference so we can identify your payment.
