The community effort to purchase the Hare and Hounds has been a success. The Community Interest Company took possession of the Hare and Hounds on 6th September 2017.
The Hare and Hounds, Harlton, closed in October 2016. At a village meeting in July 2016, there was strong support for working towards a community bid to purchase the Hare and Hounds. A Steering Group was subsequently formed to work on a bid, and since that time worked actively on fundraising and preparing a bid.
