After a tasty lunch, where you’ll meet other groups also looking to save their local, you’ll have a chance to see The Craufurd Arms up close and to speak with Mark and Gabriel to learn more about the steps needed to bring your pub into community ownership.

Whether your group is just starting out on your journey to community ownership, or in the final stages, this will be an opportunity to learn top tips from those who’ve been through the process already, as well as a great opportunity to ask questions and discuss the needs and concerns of your own community pub business.

The event is funded by Power to Change and the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government and is delivered by Plunkett Foundation. It is part of More Than A Pub: The Community Pub Business Support programme, a unique programme established to help support community ownership of pubs in England.
