We’re proud to announce that the Gardeners Rest Community Society has reached its lower funding target of £100,000 in its effort to take the Gardeners Rest in Neepsend into community ownership following the retirement of Pat and Eddy, the current owners and managers.
We are now in a good position to negotiate grants and loans sufficient to make a competitive bid to buy and preserve the pub for its community of supporters. To this end, we’ve announced our first stretch target – £50,000, which will enable us to put together a truly competitive offer to the current landlords.
With just under three weeks left to go on our Crowdfunder campaign, we are optimistic that we can reach and even exceed this goal!
Interim Director of the Gardeners Rest Community Society Ltd
