A big thank you to all of you who answered the call to help clear and clean the Chequers in preparation for a future tenancy.

Thank you to everyone who helped in this task as it was a busy period for so many in the village with preparations for the Platinum Jubilee Celebrations. So many of you were tied up with that and half term holidays. I do hope you know that you did a great job coming forward and we appreciated your effort.

We made over £200 from the yard sale, with some things being taken away FOC which was helpful as well.

We are really pleased to announce that a member of the Society with specific knowledge of commercial kitchen fabrication has been instrumental in negotiations to buy the kitchen and prep room equipment.

Meanwhile the pub is checked internally daily by a committee member to satisfy the Insurance requirements for an empty property.
