Fundraising campaign to purchase Hare and Hounds successful!
Sufficient funds have been raised to purchase the Hare and Hounds! We expect exchange of contracts to take place either in July or August, with completion in August or September, and we hope to open the pub sometime in September or October.
A number of potential tenants have been interviewed and
we now have preferred candidates [update 22-08-2017: we’re still looking to recruit the right tenant to operate the Hare and Hounds], but we cannot sign a tenancy agreement until the property transaction is complete. The Steering Group is very optimistic and positive on all fronts. Matters are taking a little longer than we had originally hoped, but we see this as a short pause in the long history and prosperous future of our village pub.
