DO YOU WANT TO SEE THE MAYBUSH INN SAVED FOR THE VILLAGE? DO YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING OR DO YOU WANT TO HELP THE CAMPAIGN TO SAVE THE PUB FOR THE VILLAGE?
The initial group of campaigners held a well attended (at least 50 villagers) public meeting in the Village Hall on Monday 20th April and have many avenues to pursue - they have invited anybody to join them or let them have positive ideas and views. There is not much time to act, so if you want to see a positive outcome, speed is of the essence!
Progress and proposals are described on the old Maybush website which is now 'under new management' at its previous address - www.maybushinn.co.uk - click here to go to that site and read what Mark and colleagues have achieved so far and are doing NOW.
