Parish residents join forces to save the future of the Papermakers Arms

Plaxtol’s renowned pub, The Papermakers Arms is under threat as the Brewery, Enterprise Inns, has decided to put in up for sale.

The Parish Council has obtained a listing for it as an Asset of Community Value, which creates a moratorium on its sale until March 25th 2016, giving the Parish a chance to organise a Community bid. Thus far, interest has been very encouraging and there is confidence that such a bid could succeed in securing the long-term future of the Pub.

The funds needed for the bid are to be raised by the selling of shares to local people which, in time, should produce a return on investment.

Presently, leaflets are being distributed by volunteers to all dwellings in the Parish explaining that full details will be forthcoming at a public meeting in the Memorial Hall, Plaxtol, at 7.45pm on Wednesday 30th 2016.

In the meantime any queries can be addressed through the Parish Office on 01732 810600.
