Thanks to everyone who came to our Pop Up Pub music night in May and I hope everyone will come to our next Pop Up Pubs this summer.
Our next event will be a Sunday Lunchtime Pop Up Pub at Forge Cottage, opposite the Cross on Sunday July 3rd. Please bring a picnic and the whole family. We'll supply the licenced bar from 12 noon to 3 pm and there'll be plenty of space in Steve and Linda's lovely garden.
Our 4th Pop Up Pub is only 24 hours away. Everyome is welcome and I hope you are all coming to have a good time and support a worthy cause.
One of the reasons we no longer have a local pub or post office was Tendring Council's decision to grant outline planning permission for 2 houses on the Cross Inn's garden at the end of 2014. The detailed application for the 2 houses has now been made and is open for comments on Tendring's planning website. http://www.tendringdc.gov.uk/planning/planning-applications/view-planning-applications-and-comment
Pop Up Pub number 4 is nearly here. Jim and Lesley are opening up their shed at Southview, just down the road from the Cross for a night of music.
Thanks to the local and regional press for the coverage. It all helps the campaign. Dave Monks on BBC Radio Essex yesterday (23rd Feb) http://www.greatbromleycross.org.uk/save_the_cross_inn/BBCRadioEssex23Feb2016.mp3
This is the view of what was the Cross Inn beer garden and patio :(
A very sad sight. I prefer to remember the music festivals, barn dances and litter pick ups. Here are a couple of pictures from happier days.
A sad day! The bulldozer arrived today and cleared the Cross Inn pub garden and trashed everything on the patio.
Our next Pop Up Pub combines 2 of my favourite things - curry and beer - need I say more?
