As with so many other things, the Coronavirus pandemic has brought a halt to our efforts to buy The George and recreate it as a community hub. Fundraising and social events planned for the spring and summer have been cancelled, and our first Annual Members Meeting, originally scheduled for April, has now been put back to December – details to be announced in due course.
On the plus side, we’ve been blessed with a considerable period in which to reconsider our business plan for The George and adapt it to changing circumstances. In the short term, the economic prospects look grim, but with eighty new homes about to be built in the village, we will still need places to meet and socialise and enjoy cultural events.
Despite these turbulent times, community businesses across the country are proving extremely resilient – so watch this space!
