Raised over £300k and submitted a purchase offer
We have raised over £300k in pledges to purchase the Hare and Hounds and to re-open it as a community pub. At a meeting on 5th December 2016 for those who had pledged, there was unanimous agreement that the Steering Group should proceed with making a purchase offer and enter negotiations with the owner of the Hare and Hounds.
It was also agreed that the Steering Group should negotiate in confidence, and will return to the pledge group in due course. We have removed the pledge graph from the web page, but are still seeking pledges to invest to maximise the chances of a successful purchase and subsequent operation of the Hare and Hounds. While we will be working hard to continue securing investment pledges, we will stop publishing on the web site updates on the amount raised.
