Save Our Sun

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

If you want to invest in the Rising Sun and save a local pub, click here now

We have passed £200k!

Thank you to everyone who has invested so far, every share that's bought takes us a little closer to saving the Rising Sun.

If you haven't invested yet, now is your chance, we need your help to save the pub. Details on how you can invest can be found here.

Investment Update

We've hit £150k! Well done everyone. If you haven't invested yet now is the time. We need your help to save the Rising Sun so please, invest, spread the word and help us reach our target.

Please note, if you pledged back in 2018 you need to complete a new form to invest. We will be reaching out to contact you over the next week but in the meantime, if you still wish to invest then you can find the details here.

We need you all to help us spread the word about the project. There are still plenty of people out there who don't know that they can buy a share and invest in the future of the Rising Sun so if you've invested make sure you let people know that they can too!

We’ll be back at the pub garden Saturday 18th September 4-6 pm and Sunday 19th September 4-6 pm if you have any questions about the project or want to find out more about buying a share.

Thanks for all your support.

We're on our way!

We’ve made a great start to our campaign with a total of £80,500 invested in the first 5 days! Thanks to all the early supporters.

From the launch we know that there is lots of interest and we need you all to step forward, dust off those cheque books and come and be a part of something truly amazing for the community.

If you want to talk in person or want a paper prospectus then come and see us this weekend at:

Tutshill Memorial Hall Friday 7-9 pm and Saturday 10:30-2:30 pm

We are excited to announce that this is because our Community Share Offer Launch will take place on Friday 3rd of September 6-8pm and Saturday 4th September 10am-4pm in the garden of the pub and we are grateful to Worthy Developments for the permission to do this.

Great News!


31 May 2021

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!

# 'Let the Sun rise again'

Cheers,

Michelle, Steve, Gerald , Lynne, Eleanor, Neil, Ged & Richard
