About us

Chequer Inn Ash Society Limited rescued a much-loved heritage building and valuable amenity for the community.

As a Community Benefit Society with almost 300 members, we raised the necessary funds to purchase The Chequer Inn, Ash (a listed building which dates from the 15th Century) and saved it from developers.

The Pub re-opened in July 2019 as a community owned pub, leased to Tenants.

Our aims are:-
• to maintain a place to meet friends and neighbours and improve the sense of community
• to provide a community hub ensuring inclusion for those who are socially excluded, isolated and lonely
• to provide a central point for information on community events and local issues
• to liaise with local organisations and groups to promote activities and charitable fund raising
• to protect and improve the fabric of this heritage building and make it accessible to all
• to create opportunities for employment
• to inject money into the local economy

Ultimately, to restore the Chequer Inn to its original function: a thriving, viable and sustainable village pub. 

Since opening we have completed a new accessible toilet and replaced both the drayman’s hatch and the cellar air-conditioning unit.

The Edwardian Tea Rooms have also been restored and are a useful and valuable addition to the garden.

We also have a lovely Community Garden where vegetables and flowers have been planted and harvested by our team of volunteer community gardeners.

WE NEED YOUR HELP! 

Our original Tenants ceased to trade in January 2022 but we managed to re-open the pub in October 2022 with new Tenants at the helm. A year later the pub is a hive of activity with good food and drink, regular quizzes, music and lively banter.

Our weekly 'MeetUpMondays'™ are well-attended and open to anyone who fancies a chat, a cuppa and a chance to meet and get to know other people. Our local Community Warden is a regular attender and is happy to help with any queries or concerns.

Our original aim and objective to improve the sense of community and encourage activities that bring people together has started to become a reality.

By choosing us as your 'Good Cause' and buying lottery tickets our vision for this community pub can continue to be achieved and built upon.

We are only the custodians of this historic coaching inn but, with your help, we can ensure its future.

Thank you for your support and good luck!

Yours sincerely,

CIAS Committee
