I was very moved by the story of how you are trying to save this piece of your history and sense of community. Best of luck from New York City!

Living in Amsterdam I have seen many dearly loved pubs who couldn't keep their heads above water anymore. Don't let this happen to the last pub in Stonesfield!

Also read of your endeavor in the New York Times. Best wishes for your success in saving The White Horse. Your plans for it are awesome. I hope it continues to be the pub of your village for many years to come!

Dear friends, you are far away but I am close to you with all my heart. A community is alive when it comes together, meets, talks, loves and laughs. I'm with you .... from here ... from Italy !!

Wishing you success in preserving this beloved community gathering place! As an American who has spent some very pleasant hours in British pubs, I know how central they are to small towns in particular. I hope to visit the White Horse someday!!

It is a privilege to support such an integral part of your - and the larger British -community. Stay healthy, and remain committed to this endeavor!

Keep the story of a place, keep a sense o community, keep a place that means and reunites people, save a piece of culture, never give up, take care of each other and save a bit of local identity for future people.

Saw an article in the New York Times about your pub closing and I couldnt see that happen. There is a small pub in New York City, a sister pub perhaps, that is also called the White Horse. It has been the watering hole for college students in Downtown Manhattan for many years, and the memories I have from that pub are priceless. Hoping the best for our sister White Horse in Stonesfield!

Pubs are an essential part of any community - and having heard about this story, want to do my bit. Also my cousin, her family and their dog Sybil (my birthday buddy) are established community residents. Look forward to hearing the good news in due course!

I want to back your effort as our family values pubs enormously, I want to support your efforts and I want to encourage others fighting to save their pubs. We've lost about 5 in the Marston area of Oxford over the last 10 years.
