raised so far



Help to raise at least £10K for a new condensing gas boiler to enable greater energy efficiency & reduce our carbon foot print.

We're still collecting donations

On the 16th December 2019 we'd raised £717 with 30 supporters in 28 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

Who are we? 

The Anglers Rest in Bamford, in the Peak District is a unique and special place which was rescued from developers in 2013 becoming the first community pub in Derbyshire. Owned by 350 residents & supporters the building also hosts a cafe and post office. Our moto is "bought by the community, for the community to invest in the community".  

What do we do?

As well as being an award winning CAMRA pub and  providing all the  usual pub, cafe and post office facilities we provide a venue for a wide variety of community activities. We support groups as diverse as the ladies who knit and natter, U3A, a local bereavement support group and the Bamford football club. We also support the local arts scene, having regular exhibitions in our cafe, a writing group and folk music club and our ever popular vinyl night! 

Our commitment to the environment

Our long term plan to make the business more energy efficient has included the installation of solar panels (thanks to Marks & Spencer), a newly insulated roof, new windows, energy saving lights etc. 

The organisation now seeks to replace an elderly gas boiler with a new gas condensing boiler with an efficiency of around 90% producing an efficiency saving of at least 20% against the old boiler. This together with thermostatic radiator valves will save money, reduce our carbon foot print, contribute to climate change mitigation as well as creating a comfortable environment for customers and residents and allowing us to continue to contribute to the overall social impact of the business.

Join us and help us to deliver an even warmer glow at the Anglers.

 Thank you for your support.
