Help To Shape A Future Red Lion

As members of Save The Red Lion Campaign’s Steering Group beaver away over their abacus trying to make sense of the reams of figures that they are pouring over, under the guise of a draft business plan, there is still time to help to influence what sort of pub you would like to see a future Red Lion business to be.
It is important that the future business that the Campaign tries to create for the Red Lion reflects feedback that we receive from the local community. To help gain this feedback we have issued a questionnaire which has been distributed at Sidbury Fair Day, at our public meeting & more recently across Sidbury door to door.
In the questionnaire we have asked what sort of pub you would like to be created and in particular we have asked when you think you would want to drink in it, when you would want to eat in it, what sort of food you would like to be served and what other services/facilities you would like the pub to offer.
The questionnaire not only is designed to understand what sort of pub you want but also how you think the pub can support & serve the local community. This latter part of the questionnaire is every bit as important as the parts that try to help to shape the business.
We have had a large number of people responding to the questionnaire which shows that there is interest in trying to influence the future Red Lion. There is still a little bit longer to get your form in if you haven’t already done so.
Completed forms should be returned to any of the addresses at the bottom of the questionnaire or returned to the Campaign email – thepubinthevillage@gmail.com.
