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 July 2018
The committe has been informed by the estate agent that the owners have said that the offer that was put forward for the Swan is "too low at this stage." They are also wanting to impose various terms and conditions which the committee is not prepared to accept. The committee is currently seeking advice as the owners have also called into question the "Asset of Community Value" status that has been placed on the pub by the Parish Council to protect the pub for the village.
The committee will issue updates regularly at this critical stage in the proceedings.
Update May 2018
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!
Minutes of the working group are below.
