|Thank you to all of you who have previously attended the public meetings regarding the potential community purchase of the Cross Inn.
Since the last meeting held on 27th September, a significant amount of work has been undertaken. A Committee of 15 members has been established, with a number of sub-groups created to take forward specific tasks. This group have all the necessary skills to both evaluate and to run the project, if appropriate.
We can confirm that the required Business Plan, Share Offer document, Risk Assessment and 3-year Financial Plan will be finalized shortly.
