Villages in Loxley, Warwickshire due to buy their own pub

Sunday 26 January 2020

Last week BBC News reported that nearly 200 residents of Loxley have joined together to buy The Fox Inn - the village's only pub - amid fears it could be sold to developers and closed down. Like the White Lion in Aldershot pub was listed as an asset of community value (ACV) which gave the community the time to raise funds to place their own bid to buy the pub. Funds have been raised through the sale of community shares and a loan to make up the difference between the £250,000 raised and the agreed price.
