Open meeting's discussion highlights

At Sunday's (19 May) open meeting there was much discussion about the various options that there could be should Punch Taverns either not be able to find a buyer or what might happen if a buyer came forward. To assist in the discussions several diagramatic papers were circulated to remind the Campaign supporters of what the outcome of the various options might be.

Whilst the diagrams & discussions didn't cover all eventualities they gave food for thought as they covered -
  • The likely outcomes should Punch Taverns be unable to sell the pub
  • What could happen if Punch Taverns were able to sell the pub, and here there are a range of possibilities to be aware of
Additionally, a diagram setting out the steps to be taken to successfully establishing & championing a Campaign to retain the Red Lion was circulated. Of most significance here was the need to create a Steering Group to take the Campaign forward. The meeting agreed to establish a Steering Group.

All 3 sets of diagrams can be viewed by following the links -
