I agree with 'spotty botty',-the Abagavenny Arms needs to be maintained as
it was a most welcoming abode and certainly not turned into some residential
establishment,-I suppose the next move is to close both the Church and the
school and then the money grabbers will be satisfied!?.What is becoming of
this sad little island,-might as well put the shutters up.

It's a pub, not a hospital. If people wanted to use the place it wouldn't have any problems keeping going.

The Abergavenny Arms will disappear unless people in Rodmell do something to save it. Gordon Brown isn't going to put his hand in his pocket to help. Brewers aren't buying at present, though you might get some interest from Harvey's. You might start by talking to the people who organised the Lewes Arms campaign. Or are you all going to shrug, leave it to someone else and put its demise down to the credit crunch? But, if you can't be arsed to do something about it, don't bitch about money grabbers ruining your village and this sad little island. Take a look in the mirror as you put the shutters up.

So, reading the Sussex Express today I see that the villagers are going to try to club together and buy this pub - and I owe them an apology for suggesting they hadn't got it in them to do it.

Why not investigate setting up a Community Owned Pub and Shop?
There is a Community Owned Pub in Thursley, in Surrey.
There are over 160 Community Owned Shops in the UK.
We have six Community Shops in Sussex with another four villages on the way to setting up shops.
The Community Shop is the first step on the way to creating Sustainable Communities.
Contact me if you are interested in joining an initial meeting to explore the possibilities.
I live in Lewes.

Sweet Fanny Adams, Nev, what's it got to do with you? more
I like The Grange Gardens, and the way the teashop has the most odd mixture of china from the charity shops
