We have our Tenants!

Our recruitment process for the tenants has now been completed. From a total of 14 applicants we have narrowed the field down through a series of interviews and business plan presentations to a final choice, taken last Wednesday evening. With a unanimous vote from the management committee we are proud to announce that Allan and Kimberley Brereton, from Doncaster, have accepted our offer of the tenancy of the Foresters Arms.

Renovation Works Beginning and Recruitment Underway!

The generosity of our supporters has continued over this last month with more people converting their pledges into cash as we close in on our £350,000 target.  We have raised a total of £325,000 in cash.  For those of you that have converted your pledges into cash you will shortly be receiving your share certificates.

The management committee are now busy on two fronts, planning the renovations and getting quotations for the work and also running the recruitment programme.

We have now purchased the Foresters.

Thanks to your generosity we have now converted enough pledges to purchase the Foresters Arms. The sale has now gone through meaning that we have been able to secure the pub for the community forever.

To date we have in total converted £284,600 of pledges into cash. This leaves us £65,400 short of our £350,000 target.
