Public Meeting on Friday 4th August at 8pm to Save The Black Horse
Village Hall, Dry Drayton
At our second public meeting we will be giving you a progress update and explain what is going to happen next. As you would expect the Black Horse Steering Group has been very busy. We have registered Dry Drayton Community Enterprises Ltd (Society registered No 7606) which will be the legal entity that will submit our offer for the Black Horse freehold on behalf of the community. More about this at the meeting. Pledges have been coming in fast and at the time of this post we are standing at £140,000 which is absolutely amazing. So a big thank you to those who have already pledged. If you intend to pledge and haven’t done so then we urge you to go to our online pledge form where you will find notes and an easy form to complete. We are very keen to get closer to our target of £250,000 by early August. Alternatively, you can go to the pledge page on our website where you will be able to download a PDF version of the pledge form.
Pop-up pub and pop-up food on Friday 4th and Saturday 5th August
Outside Village Hall, Dry Drayton
On Friday 4th August from 6pm to 11pm Lord Conrad will be serving his special brews outside the village hall. Lord Conrad’s pop-up will return to the village hall on Saturday 5th August and you will be able to enjoy a drink from 2pm to 11pm. As you may know Lord Conrad’s micro brewery is located in the village at Dry Drayton industrial estate where many craft beers have been created since 2007. We even have a special Save the Black Horse brew being prepared. Perhaps some of you tried his beers at the fun run on 4th July at the school.
We are pleased to announce that between 6pm and 9pm on Friday Nanna Mexico will be serving their delicious and authentic street food.
On Saturday 5th August from 6pm – 9pm we will be welcoming Azahar Spanish food van. We recommend that you get there early on both days if you want food. These vans can sell out.
