Kings Arms Update

Following a telephone call to Bettesworths to enquire the latest news with the sale of the pub, the agent advised that it was under offer which was proceeding. As a result it has been decided to cancel the public meeting arranged for Thursday evening 22/06/2017 until further information becomes available. Should the sale not complete for any reason, the public meeting will be re-arranged. Meanwhile, until further information becomes available, the pub remains listed as an Asset of Community Value. Let's hope the new owners provide us with the opportunity to demonstrate our willingness to support them in making their enterprising venture a huge success.
