SAVE The Swan, Clewer Village. A group of locals are seeking funding urgently to make a bid to buy the pub from Wellington Pubco. by 4th April deadline. Asset of Community Value nomination has been submitted but is likely to be contested by Wellington Pub Company so won’t be in place by the deadline. Will Calvert (07920 504704) would like to hear from anyone who would like to be involved in any way – but especially as a shareholder. Further details check Branch News.

SAVE The North Star, W Maidenhead. The freehold of the North Star is for sale and The Save the Star Community Group has been formed to try to bring the pub into community ownership. Feedback from the local survey we have done shows we have lots of support to try to rescue the pub for the local community. We would like to hear from you. If you feel you could help in any way with our campaign from fundraising ideas to being involved in the day to day practical operation, there are many ways, big and small, in which you can support us.
