We're back at the table!

Dear friends of the Boot

An update on our campaign to try to save the Boot for the community. On Friday (20th July) we were phoned by the selling agent to tell us that the higher bid we had informed you of last time has been withdrawn and inviting us to enter negotiations for the purchase of the pub.

We will in the next few weeks be looking at the proposal made to us and will be obtaining further professional advice to guide us in our next steps. As soon as practicable we will be back in touch with more details and, when a clearer position emerges, organise a public meeting to outline our next steps and give an opportunity for any questions to be answered.

In the mean time if anyone has any burning issues please just contact myself or the others on our society board and we will try to keep you as informed as possible via email and web/Facebook pages.

Best regards for now
John Alderman
