We're still collecting donations

On the 30th June 2020 we'd raised £3,738 with 77 supporters in 56 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

 New stretch target

If we get through the initial crisis and manage to reopen we will be looking to purchase stock, book bands and possibly even do more in the garden!

We want to make sure that the local pub can be a community hub in the future.I believe it is important that there is always somewhere to go to socialise and to support each other and we'd like your help to stay open.

As a venue we want to continue to offer a platform for local businesses, such as brewers and caterers to showcase their wares; to continue to be a place where you can listen to new and unsigned music for free and where artists can be supported and reach new audiences.
We want to continue to offer meeting space to local community groups and charities, to raise money for others, to improve environmental awareness and be a safe spot to meet someone new.

The current situation has made things difficult but we are not ready to stop helping each other. So please give if you can, message is you can't and ask if you need.

We ask project owners to honour their rewards wherever possible but please note that all pledges are donations and there is no guarantee that you will receive any rewards from the project owner. Please see Crowdfunder's Terms of Use for more information regarding rewards for pledges.
