By now, most of the Community Pub Questionnaires distributed have been collected. However, some haven’t due to illness, weather or a change of circumstances for the volunteers collecting.
It is clear at this early stage that the White Lion pub is both an asset and very much wanted by the community so don’t let your voice go unheard.
Anyone who hasn’t had their form collected is kindly asked to leave it at Broadwindsor Community Stores no later than 6pm tomorrow (Saturday, 17th July) for it to be included.
The results of the survey will be announced at the Public Meeting on 29th July at 7.30pm at the Comrades Hall when the proposal will be discussed further.
Any other queries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Residents of Broadwindsor, Hursey and Littlewindsor can expect a hand delivered questionnaire through their letterboxes within the next week seeking their feedback on the future of Palmers’ White Lion pub in the village square. The questionnaire will not be available online. Residents are urged to complete the questionnaire – even if they only use the pub once a month for a meal – you can help shape the outcome.
The questionnaire is on a double sided sheet of A4 paper and consists mainly of tick box answers. You can remain anonymous if you want to. Questionnaires will also be hand collected by arrangement (from your doorstep if you don’t wish to be distrurbed) to ensure as many responses from local residents as possible. are gathered.
Negotiations with Palmers Brewery are ongoing and people are working hard in continued discussions re: the future of the White Lion in Broadwindsor. Cllr. Leader stated the situation is “not hopeless“. Although the pub will always remain tied to Palmers Brewery, they have offered some manoeuvrability on a sustainable rent and all involved are trying to reach a deal that will work.
Following collection of the questionnaire, there will be a Public Meeting at the Comrades Hall on Thursday, 29th July at 7.30pm (tbc).
