So what's been achieved by the team so far?
By the end of March we have:
Formed the Save Baydon Lion Team with the objective of raising the funds to acquire the Red Lion as a community pub.
Worked with Baydon Parish Council to Register the Red Lion with Wiltshire Council as an Asset of Community Value (ACV) which, once it is registered, prevents it from being sold for six months.
Identified a ‘core’ group of villagers who have expressed an interest in potentially investing in the Red Lion as a community pub.
Started to prepare a business plan setting out we plan to raise the funds to acquire the Red Lion.
We'll update this page as things progress.
