Background

The Hare and Hounds is set to close this October. Despite Sue’s best efforts to sell the pub, unfortunately a buyer has not been found. Thanks to Sue’s hard work over many years, the pub has been a valuable asset to the village community – an asset we do not wish to lose.

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 has been engaging with Sue, actively seeking advice and planning fundraising activities.

We are very optimistic that we can keep the pub going, and carry on the valuable work that Sue has done over the past nine years. Following meetings with Sue, we are now putting together a business plan with a view to making a viable bid for the Hare and Hounds.
