I am contacting you from Bladon Community Pub (https://bladoncommunitypub.org/ , we’re a group of people trying to save our pub in Bladon village.

The White House has been at the heart of the Bladon community since the 17th Century and is the last remaining pub and community facility in the village. It’s also the pub where Churchill “learned to drink” when at nearby Blenheim Palace. With a growing population of just under 1,000 residents and thousands of visiting tourists, this important and historic pub is the lifeblood of the community.

We are also being supported in our effort by Sir Winston’s great grandson Randolph Churchill and have some great quotes from him.

The community now has an opportunity to put in a bid to buy and manage the future of the pub but we only have until 13th March 2020 to raise the £500,000 required to buy the pub and so far villagers have pledged £128,000.

Our share offer launched on 13th December and runs until 31st January 2020.

Please let me know if you are free to have a chat or need any further information.

Many thanks in advance.

Best,

Rachel
