Shares in Marston pub now available to buy
The Marston community is also busy preparing a bid to buy The Thorold Arms pub, a campaign which took a major step forward with the launch of their share offer on St George’s Day.
Seventy people packed out the village hall to hear how the Thorold Arms Community Benefit Society Limited plans to purchase and re-open the Main Street pub, restore its shop and B&B facilities, as well as create a new café.
Campaign organiser Ian Tyler says £35,000 in shares has already been pledged, and added how measures have been put in place to protect shareholders.
They have until May 31 to put forward an offer to receivers, before the pub goes to auction. For further details, and to apply for shares, go to www.save.thethoroldarms.co.uk
