The Red Lion was recently refused a renewal of its Asset of Community Value status by SODC. This means that the community no longer has the right to purchase the pub if the freeholder decided to sell it as a house (that is not Corinne our new landlady!). The parish council is going to submit a revised application but we need your help. Please let us know why the pub is an asset of community value to support our application by emailing the parish council. The SODC guidance is attached below. The more detailed the better with reasons and examples if possible.
