Save The Royal Oak, Frindsbury

LATEST DEVELOPMENTS AND UP-TO-DATE NEWS FROM JOE O'DONNELL

Partial Victory and public meeting!

3 Jun 2016 — The pub has now been Grade II listed by Historic England who have recognised its late 17th century origins!! https://www.historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1434926

As a result, the developer has withdrawn their application for demolition. However, we still need to convince the developer to sell the pub to us rather than submit a new application (these options will all be much less profitable than the 7 houses they had planned for the site).

We are holding a public meeting on the future of the Royal Oak on 3rd July at 1:30pm at Wainscott Memorial Hall. There will be an outline of the current position and our different options.

Please come along if you would like to be on the committee of the campaign group which will make decisions etc or if you would be interested in helping fund the purchase.

Please share the event with anyone who maybe interested and RSVP on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/events/242765839433904/

My vision is for a restored pub which makes the most of it's 300 year old features in the 21st century but remains an affordable hub for the community.

Thank you for your support so far and thank you to the memorial hall which is letting us host this event for free.
