Save Our Sun

For the last 8 years we have been working to bring The Rising Sun back for the people of Woodcroft.

You can follow the journey here and find out what you can do to help.

Great News!

We hope everyone enjoyed the fantastic bank holiday sunshine.

We are delighted to announce that after an eight year campaign, we have reached an agreement with Worthy Developments to purchase the Rising Sun on behalf of our Community! Let's raise a glass to this wonderful news!

There is a lot of work to do and the Committee are busy putting the final touches to our business plan and developing our prospectus. So that we can share the plans with you all and launch our share offer towards the end of the Summer.

You will be hearing from us shortly with another consultation about what people want from their local pub and hub to make sure we are completely up to date with your thoughts and views and can access all funding streams available to us. So please watch out for this and fill one in when it comes.

Thanks to everyone who has supported us on this journey and everyone who will help our vision of The Rising Sun owned by the community for the community become a reality.

Please spread the word to your friends and neighbours.

Here's to a pint in our pub next May bank holiday!
