The company which – hopefully – will run the Brook Inn has been registered and interim directors named. The company is called Back the Brook Ltd and the three initial directors are Alan Amphlett Lewis, George Wiseman and Ian Evans. At present this is more of a procedural move and not necessarily the future directors of the company who will run the pub.
We have received a response from Punch Taverns to our initial bid and it was rejected. Not much feedback from either the pub company or the agent only that the figure was ‘unacceptable’. The committee will be meeting in the next few weeks to consider the position and whether we have enough funds at present to proceed further, but the decision has highlighted the need to continue pressing for pledges. We will keep people up to date with goings on via the website.
