The decision to put The Swan into an auction at short notice stopped any chance of the Save Our Swan group from making an offer. All community projects such as this, require a charitable organisation such as ours, to operate under strict rules, and the gathering of money from those who made pledges cannot be done in such a short time frame.
So the pub has been sold and it is hoped that the new owner will re-open it in due course, after carrying out the necessary refurbishment works. We are ready to assist in any way to help make this happen.
If however, there is a different agenda, we will be monitoring what evolves and making any representation necessary to ensure that The Swan remains a pub for the benefit of the village.
The SOS Committee will remain in place with Peter Allen as Chair. Please direct any questions to Peter Allen 01728 627730 / firstname.lastname@example.org
