Hello and Happy new year to you all. I am sorry that we've been a bit quiet recently, but there has been a lot going on behind the scenes
We had a professional valuation done from someone with 25 years experience in the pub valuation business and we decided, from this, that we had enough support to go ahead and make an offer to buy the pub.
We made 2 offers 10 and 20% above this valuation; unfortunately both were rejected by Worthy Developments. We have these rejections in writing. This would give us an extremely strong case should they apply for planning and claim that they have marketed the property but been unable to sell it. The estate agents have informed us that they have not had any other offers to date.
We are now liaising with the council to look at a legal way forward and will keep you all informed.
Thanks for your ongoing support; community power will save our pub!
