The Swan Public house has been an important part of village life. Its current closure has led to the formation of a working group to consider the future life of the pub.
Update May 2018
As reported last month we have been able to gain access to The Swan and have now had both a condition survey and a measured survey carried out. We hope to make an offer for the pub to the agent within the next three to four weeks. The Committee has written to Mid Suffolk/Babergh District Council to object to the application to build on the ancient bowling green adjacent to the pub on the grounds of the shared access, potential drainage issues and concerns regarding the trees with preservation orders, amongst other things. We are busy finalising the business plan currently so keep your eye on the website www.worlingworthswan.co.uk
for further updates. We continue to fundraise and all pledges are warmly welcomed! We cannot do this without your help so please show support and come forward with a pledge if you have not already done so. Thank you. Contact 01728 627735.
Update March 2018
We have at last been able to gain access to the Swan. The Committee met with Akermans on site to assess the condition. It is not in a good condition as was to be expected. The next step is to have a full report from a surveyor carried out. We will call a public meeting when this information has been gathered and assessed. This could be seen as a positive step forward!
