The Crown Inn – May / June Update

Grant Funding

Following the announcement of the General Election, we have received a further email from The Community Ownership Fund Team in which they have advised that:

 ‘We have now entered a pre-election period. There will be no further Community Ownership Fund announcements at this time‘.

This pre-election period, formerly known as purdah, is when guidance is in place limiting the use of public resources and the activities of the government and civil servants.

We requested clarification from the COF Team and asked if our bid is:

  • To be considered cancelled
  • On hold until after the election
  • Unknown until after the election.

Unfortunately, responses have reiterated that there will be no announcements made during the pre-election period nor will any correspondence be entered into.

Updates from the Parish Council are distributed by email. These include news of developments in the council’s initiative to purchase The Crown Inn. Please enter your details in the following form if you wish to be included in the mailing list.
