This Wednesday there was a public meeting in Cwmdu Village Hall about buying out the Farmers Arms for the community. The pub has been on sale for some time and if we act soon, we can save its future as a community asset.
There are different ways this could be achieved. Perhaps the most practical would be to let the pub on a cheap rent to tenants who would manage it themselves with relatively little up front costs. While the business will take some time to build up, it offers all sorts of opportunities. The pub already has a restaurant and a B & B.
If you are interested in getting involved, the pertinent question would you be willing to buy shares or make a loan to save the pub for the community?
