Save the Crown in South Moreton
South Moreton are seeking local support to save their village pub, The Crown. The previously Wadworth-owned pub was closed by the brewery in 2016, and has been threatened with conversion to a curry house, which thankfully never came to fruition. A property developer is now seeking planning permission to convert the site into three separate houses, and this has fuelled the local residents to fight to keep the Crown as their local pub.
To keep up to date with news of the campaign and to register your interest, visit their website or Facebook page. All supporters are invited to a special community meeting taking place on January 13th 2018 at Hall Farm, Mill Lane, South Moreton, OX11 9AJ. There will be presentations and opportunities for questions, accompanied by a pig roast and licensed bar.
