A community owned pub for Tollerton?

For most villages a pub is a vital service; it is a meeting place, communication centre and an important lynchpin of village life. Much of the appeal of our village rests on its sense of community. It is the reason many people have moved here and remain here. The presence of a pub would, we feel, greatly enhance that community spirit.

This questionnaire is the first step. We need to know your views on what might be provided and what would receive your support. Please be as honest and realistic as possible in your answers! Your response will be treated in confidence. It is entirely anonymous, unless you wish to add your name at the end.

We would also like to hear from you if you feel you could help in any way with the running of the pub. There will be a wide range of tasks to be done from the initial setting up of the project to managing the enterprise and being involved in the day to day practical operation.

This kind of venture has been successfully achieved in other communities all over the UK. There are currently 40 co-operative pubs in the UK and most of these have been set up with the support of the charity Plunkett Foundation (www.plunkett.co.uk). Will our community be the next one?
