The Grantham Journal has picked up our Campaign.
Judith Hawkins, reporter for the Grantham Journal, has written a nice report about the “Save The Thorold Arms Campaign” and our meeting on Saturday 14th of November.
A community is so determined to keep their village pub and shop, which closed after falling into financial difficulties, that they are drawing up plans to purchase the premises themselves.
The Thorold Arms in Marston shut over the summer, leaving residents without a pub in the village, as well as the popular accompanying shop.
