We're continuing to raise more funds and your support is vital.
The buildings survey has been completed. Solicitors are in full document-scrutiny mode. As we head to exchange & completion we're launching our loan scheme.
We offered more than the pub is worth but were still turned down. Why is that? Do you think the owners have a better offer?
If you've made a pledge and not yet deposited the funds - please get your skates on and, quite literally, hand over the money. We'd like to make an offer to Dave & Cheryl as soon as possible.

A taste of things to come. Please book early.
