Merry Christmas!

On Christmas Eve it will be exactly ten years since the Foresters Arms reopened after being rescued for the community, thanks to the generous support given by you, our members.

To mark this momentous achievement, we are planning to hold celebratory events at the Foresters Arms next year, when hopefully we will have glorious sunshine and there will be less uncertainty that Coronavirus will affect our plans. Looking back, what was achieved in the early part of 2011 can only be described as truly remarkable.

ln less than a year, funds were raised to buy and refurbish what had become an asset-stripped building site and the Foresters Arms was once again open for business. The dedication and determination of the management committee formed in March that year inspired local people, as well as those not living in the area, to pledge to buy shares. By April over £157,000 had been pledged and by June it was possible to make an offer of £225,000 to purchase what was left of the Foresters Arms.

The offer was accepted and the CCP Ltd became the owners of the Foresters Arms in July 2011.

Dear Member

We hope this finds you and your family and friends well after this strange and very difficult last eighteen months.

Thank you very much for being shareholders in the buildings of our community pub in Coverdale. Your support has been crucial to the survival of the venture in what has been a particularly challenging time for the hospitality industry, we are very grateful to you.

The Board have continued to work with our tenants to support them through this last year in our community pub, while at the same time acting in the best interests of all our shareholders.

You will be aware that many pubs that closed during the various Lockdowns over the last year have been unable to re-open at all, and we are very relieved that the Foresters Arms is not one of those.
