Today's Exeter Express & Echo newspaper is the first to break the story about the move to create a campaign to retain the Red Lion. With a photograph of the pub full square within the piece, the paper reports about Punch Taverns placing the Red Lion up for sale & the potential implications for the future of it, not only for those who use it, but also the landlord.
The Express & Echo gives full details of the open meeting being held on Sunday 19 May & the reasons why it has been called. The paper also prints the various social media sites that can be accessed to keep up to date with the moves to create a campaign.

We await with interest to see what tomorrow's Sidmouth Herald says in its report on the story.
