Hello subscriber,

You're receiving this e-mail because you're a supporter of the Tally Ho Inn, Littlehempston.

When we wrote to you last month, we'd just agreed a price for the pub, and then promptly discovered that we were losing a couple of car park spaces, and the gas supply seemed to have disappeared.  Those little wrinkles have been ironed out, and the price we've agreed to pay now matches the valuation that we had done back in April after a full survey.

So now it's full steam ahead !  The solicitors have started work on the conveyancing, and we're starting to look at things like recruitment, environmental health requirements, etc.  We're hoping to complete the purchase in late January or February, and re-open as soon as we can after that - possibly within a week or two.  There'll be lots of opportunities for volunteers to help with cleaning, re-decorating, publicising the opening, helping out in the first few days etc. - so if you fancy lending a hand please get in touch and let us know how you'd like to help.

Shares are still available at £250 each, and if you’re a UK tax payer then you should be able to get 30% of your investment back from the taxman under the government’s Enterprise Investment Scheme.

We've added a new poster / handout to our website's Publicity Material page which you can download, print out and display in your window, car or anywhere else that people will see it - or use it as a handout for anyone you meet that's interested in our project.

Merry Christmas, and we're looking forward to the New Year when we can all meet up for a drink and a meal in South Devon’s first community pub !

Littlehempston Community Pub Ltd.
