Volunteer Call to Arms for Strete Community Pub

Can you help your community pub by volunteering?
Volunteers will not only be key to the pub’s long-term success but vital in creating a vibrant community feel.
The pub team have already recruited a number of people to the volunteer group but there are still a number of tasks that they would love your help with.
If you would like to join the volunteer group, please contact Andy at or call on 07504 062 484.
There are tasks to get the pub open that need volunteers and tasks for when the pub is open. Of course, the same people may want to get involved to do both.
Here's the list for getting the pub open:

1. Repoint the paving.
2. Deep clean cellar and kitchen.
3. Sign writing and chalkboards.
4. Repair / Replace Fire Doors
5. Install picket fence at the bottom of the garden

And this is the help needed when the pub is open:

1. Daytime and/or night time bar staff.
2. Serving staff and table clearing when we are busy.
3. Regular cleaning.
4. Empties and storing deliveries.
5. Plating up in the kitchen at busy times.
6. Washing up in the kitchen.
7. Takeaway delivery.
8. Help manage some of the key events.
9. Laundry.
10.Electrician and plumber for two or three tasks.
11.Mason to help create a doorway and fit a door.
12.Repairs to the kids' playground.
If you think you would like to get involved and want to find out more, please contact Andy at or call on 07504 062 484.
Andy looks forward to hearing from as many as possible who would like to take part in bringing the Kings Arms back to life.

Call To Arms for The Kings Arms - Business Plan

Today our fundraising starts for real. We have already had a number of pledges but we have got a long way to go. So today we are launching our business plan. The vision is to create a vibrant, much loved hub for our village. But more than that, over time we believe the pub can and should become a way of funding good causes in our community. If you have any questions please contact and please do share with anyone else you know who might want to help. Thank you!
Please follow the links to the summary of the business plan and the full business plan
