Drop In Sessions January 2020

Last year, over 4 weeks over 300 villagers helped raised £140K towards the 170K target to secure and improve the pub for the village. Thank you so much! 

The Community Pub Steering Group have just had a short break for Xmas and New Year. We hoped you a good one too! And now, we are back!

In January we are holding another round of Drop-in Q/A and Pledge Sessions to help us raise final £30K needed to reach the full target of £170K. This will allow the improvements to be completed, to give the village the pub it deserves.

The following sessions will be available for anyone who wishes to find out more about the community pub and purchasing shares. We will have extra application forms available and can help you complete the forms.

We will also provide information about purchasing shares for children and young people and business sponsorship.

Wow! Just wow 🤩, we did it! We’ve raised more than enough to purchase the pub. 🍻

Thank you  😀

Thank you to the 283 people who have purchased shares.

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered their time, shared information and promoted our cause to friends and family.

Thank you to everyone who have supported this project so far and have believed in the Community Pub.

We’re still a little bit short of the ideal total to transform the pub into a community facility we’re all proud, and new applications for share can still be made.

But we can go into Christmas confident that we’ve saved the Air Hostess for the village – what a fantastic early Christmas 🎄 present 🎁.

The Steering Committee are going to take a little rest of the festive period, which your Facebook feeds and post boxes will probably be pleased to hear about! 😄

We will be back in the New Year with what happens next and how we complete the final push! 🥂

To get us in the festive mood and celebrate the last 2 weeks of the share offer we have created the 14 days of Sharemas (to the tune of 12 Days of Christmas)

Share Launch A Great Success

Its been almost a week since the Share Launch Event on the 20th November.

We had around 200 people attend the event, resulting in standing room only!

Queuing outside

The main element of the night was the steering group’s presentation, which covered the history of the Air Hostess, survey results, business plan, financial plans and the long awaited share offer.

Thanking those who have given support to the Steering Committee – Matt Garrad
The history of the Air Hostess – Steve King
The survey results – Chloe Higgins
Business Plan & ‘The Dream Pub’ – Anthony Sumner
Hearing from our local property expert – Graham Sheardown
Finances & Fundraising Target – Rupert Butt

By the end of the evening we had already raised £22,750! Which has continued to rise ever since, much to the steering groups delight.

The Share Offer – Claire Dul
Counting how many shares sold!

If you’re interested in watching the presentation, the video is included below. Otherwise feel free to come to our second launch event on Sunday the 8th of December, 3 – 4pm in the Parish Rooms.

We’d also like to thank all the volunteers and steering group members who didn’t make it in front of the camera!

Lastly, thank you to the following organisations for supporting our cause and promoting our events; BBC Radio Nottingham, West Bridgford Wire, Nottingham Evening Post, Everards Brewery and Castle Rock Brewery
