All change.

The "Bromley Cross Consultation Document" I mentioned in my last post has been withdrawn because one of the landowners does not want to proceed on the group proposal and wishes to undertake their own course of action". See

So we're talking to the agents to try and get an outline agreement on our purchase for just the pub.  More news when we have it.

Our first pop up pub is tomorrow night, Saturday 14th November, at Forge Cottage opposite the Cross Inn.  If you haven't got tickets, you can still turn up on the night for a drink at our licensed bar and even a hot dog (if the people with tickets haven't eaten the lot). I'm sure we'll squeeze you in, 7:00 till 11:00. See you then I hope.

More good news!

Save the Bromley Cross has received our first grant, for our work to save the Cross Inn, Great Bromley as a village pub and amenity.  The Plunkett Foundation has awarded us a bursary of £2000.  This has already funded the cost of setting up and registering our new company, The Great Bromley Cross Pub Community Benefit Society Limited, and will pay for plenty of our other initial start up costs including printing our share prospectus, which we plan to publish soon.

The Save The Bromley Cross Steering Group is meeting this evening, Wednesday 23rd September, in the Great Bromley Cricket Pavillion, behind the village hall at 8pm (after the Tendring Central Garden Village consultation).

We're finalising all the paperwork for the Great Bromley Cross Pub Community Benefit Society and will be planning our next public meeting, in early October, where we launch our share prospectus. And we may even squeeze in a crafty beverage in the Courthouse afterwards.
