I've been following the progress of buying the Ploughshare from my home in Grand Cayman and wanted to show my support for the community of Beeston.

Peter Marcou 5th December 2018

The Ploughshare has been a special place for me to visit after a days flying. It is local and the folk visiting the pub had a great time with the all the folk who like ale, beer, wine, spirits, food, pub quizzes, music, meetings and BBQ's. What's not to like about supporting this Pub. Please ... take my money and lets save the Ploughshare!

Anna Orr 4th December 2018

Good luck! It will be great to have a pub back in the heart of the village! Look forward to popping in when I’m visiting my parents!

Colin Parker 18th November 2018

As an ex resident of the village I would love the former hub of the village to re-open to enhance the atmosphere and enjoyment of the village for the residents and those of surrounding villlages for many years to come.Best of luck.

Fully behind this project, just seeing how much effort has been put in already and it would be a great shame to fall at the final hurdle. Lets not give up.
