Many, many thanks to Vanda Roberts and the Southend Festival Chorus for leading us in some beautiful carol singing on Thursday night.  And thanks to Anthony Roberts, Director of Colchester Arts Centre for the great reading of "Twas the Night Before Christmas" (fortunately he didn't sing).  If you weren't at the Cross, and you missed us live on Facebook, then you can hear how great they sounded on our You Tube channel.

Over 140 people have invested £210,000 which has saved the Cross Inn, Great Bromley, from being lost as our village pub and will allow us to restore it as the heart of the community.

Thanks to all of you who have helped in so many ways.

The Last Weekend?

Onwards and Upwards.  I think it's 115 shareholders and £154,000 invested - and I say think because we keep getting more and more shareholders.  Thank you all, you wonderful people.   Our last pop up pub at the Cross Inn is this weekend, 18th - 20th November and, to meet the terms of our share prospectus, we need to raise £210,000 so we can complete the purchase and re-open the Cross Inn, Great Bromley as a community-owned and community-run pub.
