A community owned pub for Clyffe Pypard, Bushton, Broad Town and Tockenham

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.

There are also hard copies of this questionnaire available - these will be distributed around our communities shortly. Please see your local newsletters for more detail.

The results of this survey will be published and presented when the proposal is to be considered further.

We would also like to hear from you if you feel you could help in any way with the running or maintenance of the pub. There will be a wide range of tasks to be done from the initial setting up, 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 c100 community pubs in the UK and most of these have been set up with the support of the charity Plunkett Foundation. Will our community be the next one?

If you wish to speak directly to someone about this project please contact David Gagen by email
Alternatively, you can speak to us face to face at the next community meeting which will be held on Tuesday 20th August at Bushton village hall at 7.30pm.
