Who We Are – The Friends of The Garibaldi Community Interest Company (CIC)

We are a vibrant and diverse group of locals from Redhill and surrounding areas, united by our passion for The Garibaldi Pub. Since 2016, we have successfully transformed it from a fading establishment into a bustling community hub that welcomes everyone—from regular patrons to community groups seeking a friendly meeting place.

Our Mission

After nearly seven years of successful operations under a lease agreement, we now have the unique opportunity to secure the future of our beloved pub by purchasing its freehold. Owning The Garibaldi outright will ensure our continued independence and control over our community-focused operations.

Why Crowd-fund?

While we have substantial support and resources, including our own savings, securing the additional funds through crowd-funding will ensure that we can complete the purchase without financial strain. Your contribution will directly support the preservation of this community asset for future generations.

Our Story: From Uncertainty to Revival

2016-2017: A Critical Turnaround
Initially threatened by development plans, our community rallied to save The Garibaldi. Against the odds, we stopped the proposed demolition, took over management, and reopened the pub, quickly re-establishing it as a favourite local haunt.

2018-2019: Growth and Community Integration
Under new management, we expanded our offerings, hosting a wide range of activities and events that cemented The Garibaldi's role as more than just a pub but a vital community centre.

2020-Present: Navigating the Pandemic and Beyond
The COVID-19 pandemic posed unprecedented challenges. However, our adaptive strategies, such as transitioning to off-sales and engaging community support, kept us relevant and beloved by our patrons. As we emerge from the pandemic, our focus is on further community integration and sustainable growth.

What Makes Us Unique?

The Garibaldi isn’t just a pub; it’s a community lifeline. We host events ranging from beer festivals to charity fundraisers, and offer activities like music bingo and live performances. Our efforts go beyond just serving drinks; we foster a sense of community and belonging.

The Future – Securing and Sustaining Our Hub

Purchasing the freehold will secure our autonomy, allowing us to innovate further without the constraints of external landlords. This move will protect The Garibaldi from potential market fluctuations and ensure its survival as a cherished community resource.

How You Can Help

By contributing to our crowd-funding campaign, you're not just buying us bricks and mortar - you're investing in a community and preserving a piece of local heritage. Every pledge brings us closer to keeping The Garibaldi as a vibrant community hub.

Your support can make a crucial difference. We invite you to be part of our future, ensuring that The Garibaldi continues to serve as a beacon of community spirit and camaraderie in Redhill. Join us in our bid to own our hub and help keep our doors open for many years to come!
