Progress so far...

The Red Lion Community Group has been working hard over the past few weeks and have made considerable progress towards a position from where we can submit an offer to buy the Red Lion. So far, we have:

 

  • Visited The Thorold at Marston and the Air Hostess at Tollerton, both community owned pubs, to benefit from their experiences

  • Set up a bank account

  • Gathered local opinions via our online survey

  • Created the website and a Facebook page #savetheredlionstathern

  • Joined the Plunkett Foundation: an organisation established to support community projects

  • Funded & commissioned a valuation report and have had viewings of the property

  • Applied to the FCA for incorporation as a Community Benefit Society

  • Prepared for the launch of a Share Offer Scheme to raise the funds to purchase the property

 

Look out for more information on the Share Offer, available on this website.
