Here's a few photos from 8th and 9th January 2016.  Thursday 8th was our our 1st charity quiz undercommunity ownership.

It was just like old times.  Brenda wrote the quiz and Richard was question master. Next time we'll get some pub reading glasses for Richard. And as you can see the pub was full.

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.
