BHSG Meeting 29-05-2017

Another week and another steering group meeting, this time at the Lord Conrad’s Brewery Tap featuring 400 Degrees Pizza (the beer and pizza were both excellent!)

We’ve had a good week with plenty of signups to our newsletter and questions from potential investors.

This meeting mostly focused on:

  • When we should hold our first village meeting to explain to the community how we are planning on saving the pub, and also explain how to become an investor
    • We are planning on confirming a date during the first week of July
  • How to raise awareness of our event(s) and cause
    • leafleting Dry Drayton and also geographically close communities such as Bar Hill, Hardwick and Cambourne
    • Pages in local newsletters
    • Roadside signs
    • Visiting other events to talk to the community and give out leaflets/information
  • How to gather feedback from the community on ideas / wants for the pub (online questionnaire and paper questionnaire at events)
  • The business plan – we have a couple of business plans from pubs hat have been successfully saved by the local community as a great starting template, and a good idea of what we need to do.
    • The plan is to have a draft business plan and investor prospectus to present at our community meeting in July

In addition to the above we’ve also commissioned a valuation of the pub and submitted forms to the Plunkett Foundation who have provided invaluable support and advice to other successfully saved pubs.

Pizza. Beer. Pub saving.
