A Public Meeting was held on 8th February 2015
Over 120 people attended the Public Meeting on Sunday 8th February at the Warriner School Hall to support the continuing effort to buy the Red Lion site and open it as a community run restaurant, pub and village centre.
The steering group explained to the meeting various possibilities, the best received being restoration of the buildings and garden to their former condition with the premises managed by Wendy Dickens who is an experienced caterer and well known in Bloxham.
The obstacle that remains is that the current owner, Fullers, are insisting on a price that the village cannot pay. In an effort to bridge the gap, a number of villagers volunteered that they would be prepared to subscribe towards payment of some measure of over-valuation. The steering group is now entering into further negotiations with Fullers in an effort to carve out a reasonable solution.
In order to succeed in this venture we are in need of additional funding so please do lend your support by completing a further pledge form which is available for download on the lefthand side of the page.
