The Project is receiving tremendous support from a wide range of individuals and bodies, not just financially but also in terms of support, advice and the provision of professional services.
Below is a board recently added to the hoarding in front of the George which says it all.
A message from Tessa Hilder, The Architectural Heritage Fund
“The Architectural Heritage Fund is delighted to support The George Community Pub Ltd in seeking to save this important heritage building, which is significantly at risk. This historic pub is a key part of the fabric of the town, both architecturally within the historic streetscape, but also as the sole remaining public house. Pubs are so important in enabling people to come together and in providing a welcome to visitors, helping communities to thrive socially and economically. Our funding will help with exploring how The George can be brought into community ownership, with the potential to secure its future as a vital social hub and resource for all the community.”
