As you would have read, we are starting our refurbishment process of the pub and grounds and things are starting to take shape. However, due to the fact the building is listed, there is only a certain amount we can do until the Listed Building Consent comes through. However, there are a range of smaller jobs we can be carrying on with which would be great to get our community involved to keep our costs low and village morale high! Would any of these be suitable for you to be involved with? Please let me know by sending us a PM and we’ll add you to the rota. Thanks to those who have already replied.
