Chequer Inn Ash Society Limited rescued a much-loved heritage building and valuable amenity for the community.
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. We found great Tenants to run it and the Pub re-opened in July 2019.
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.
AND IT WAS GOING SO WELL!
We are now in uncharted waters - just weeks ago, none of us expected to be in this position as the coronavirus situation has forced pubs to close and caused the cancellation of events and activities.
Overcoming the issues created by a global pandemic requires some new strategies and we are working hard to ensure that we do everything within our power to ‘weather the storm’.
WE NEED YOUR HELP
Its challenging times for everyone but now, more than ever, we need your support.
Whilst the pub is closed perhaps you would consider spending what you would have spent on a night out on some lotto tickets instead?
If you are able to support please join the lottery today to help us secure the future of this community hub.
Thank you for everything you are doing for your local community and good luck!
