Hi from Toronto. I've been following your story for over a year. My mother in law has lived for many years in Sedbergh, and once we are allowed to travel again my wife and I are looking forward to visiting the Dales with a side trip for lunch at the Gun! Good luck with the reopening.

I have followed your project and take my hat off to you ALL for your efforts. There are winners and losers with Covid, no middle ground. A Lamb shank and bottle of red was enjoyed virtually. All the best. Steve. Kielder.

Looking forward to visiting The Gun when COVID restrictions are lifted and we can travel internationally again. Until then I wish you all the success for May 17th and the future.

I live in Cobourg, Ontario. When I first heard of your efforts I planned of buying a share. Things happened quickly at that point with the virus and all, so I withdrew my support. Well done with your efforts. I will donate a few litres of paint as my contribution and hope someday to share a pint at the Gun. Sincerely
