I am delighted to confirm that today we have completed on the purchase of the Exelby Green Dragon.
We are well ahead in planning the redevelopment of the Exelby Green Dragon and have appointed an architect to take forward the redesign of the pub and reinstatement of the cottage.
Next steps include recruiting a suitable tenant and it is our intention to have the pub and restaurant operating as soon as possible. Over the coming months you will see many other changes to the pub with the introduction of a shop and café together with several community focused events. We are sure that you will think these changes are for the better!
There will be regular progress reports on these developments and there will be lots of opportunities to get involved. In the first instance, if you can help with a general clean up, moving furniture, gardening or some painting, we would love to hear from you!
We will be having a general clear out at the pub on Saturday 20th October and Sunday 21st in the first instance from about 10.00 am. We will also have a more general celebration event at the beginning of November to showcase our plans.
Our website is an excellent source of information and we also post to Facebook. If you have any specific ideas, skills to share or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.
It has been a long journey to get to this point and we still have a long way to go but with your support and encouragement we are confident that once again the Exelby Green Dragon will be right at the heart of the community.
