A Community Pub In Broadwindsor?

Broadwindsor Group Parish Council has been approached by Palmers Brewery to see if the Community is interested in opening a Community Pub.

The issue is on the agenda for the next Parish Council meeting on the 21st June. In the meantime a small group of residents, including Parish Councillors, are undertaking some initial investigative work to assess the feasibility of such a project.  At the appropriate time a public meeting will be held to report the findings and canvas the views of residents.

Initial responses to the Council’s announcement on Facebook think it is a good idea.  However, being restricted to Palmer‘s products has quickly been highlighted as a cause for concern.  So much so that a Community Pub could be sited at the Comrades Hall.  This happened previously when the pub was closed and worked very well.

The Council have yet to name anyone in their investigative group, therefore please address your comments to Helen Cudmore, The Town Clerk: hello@broadwindsorgroup.gov.uk.

Vikki’s Specials This Week – But Not For Much Longer

With great sadness, villagers are learning that Spike and Vikki at The White Lion pub have handed their notice in to Palmer’s Brewery.

Vikki posted the announcement on social media yesterday:

“It is with much sadness that we have to inform you that we have handed in our notice to the brewery and will be leaving the White Lion in the near future.  There are many reasons for this hard decision ( financial,  family , covid ). We would like to thank all of you who have supported us over the years,  including Palmers,  who have supported us 100% especially during covid. We will let you know more details as and when we have them.”

This will be a great loss to the community and although sad to be losing them, we wish them both every happiness for their future.

  • Homemade Thai Red Prawn Curry with Basmati Rice.

Who’s Buying The First Round?

Monday May 17th?

Following the Government’s announcement of their 3 Step plan out of LockdownThe White Lion in Broadwindsor MAY be allowed to open its door on Monday, 17th May 2021 after being closed since forever it seems!

Landlords Spike & Vikki commented: We can’t post any days or times yet, we want to wait ’til nearer the time to see what the situation is. It will be good to bring the pub back to life as it should be.”

We are so used to seeing Spike, Vikki, Molly & Tabitha looking like this.
We do look forward to seeing their smiles when we walk in through their door again – smiling too!

We all have our fingers crossed.

The BBC reports that the closure statistics highlight how the duration of economic support, as well as the vaccination timetable, could be crucial in determining how long doors stay closed.

The furlough wage support scheme is due to finish at the end of April 2021 – whilst business rates holidays for hospitality and leisure firms are due to end early in the same month in each of the UK nations.

The end of March will also see the application period close for Government-backed loans of up to £50,000 to smaller businesses under the “bounce back” scheme.

There are grants available for Businesses in retail, hospitality and leisure more of which will be published at a later date.  Click HERE for more information from the BBC.
