New members of the management committee

SCPL are pleased to report two recent additions to the Management Committee, Jane Yates and Martin Gundry, who were both appointed late last year. Jane brings a wealth of knowledge of the local area and particular expertise in the lettings business in and around Stockland. She is involved with the local community as a Trustee and secretary to Stockland Victory Hall. Martin has a background in negotiation, and decades of connections with Stockland and the King’s Arms. We are delighted to have their support as we move away from planning issues and towards

setting out our detailed plans for the renovation of the Kings Arms.

Appeal For Photos of the Kings Arms

We are working hard behind the scenes developing our “digital strategy” including the establishment of our own website. Do you have any photos of the King’s Arms from a few years ago? We would like to source photos of the pub when it was open, mainly to use on the website, if you can help please contact any member of the committee. In particular we would like photos of events in or outside the pub.

Valuation Latest

We appointed an industry expert before Christmas who has been into the pub and is compiling his report as to viability and valuation. Other professionals have also made internal inspections with regard to the electrics, heating and plumbing. Once we have the valuation in hand and have worked that into the business plan, we intend to make a revised offer to Horatio for the entire Kings Arms site and we will of course publish the outcome of that offer as soon as we can.


Watch this space for news of an upcoming pop-up-pub and fundraising event in February. Thank you for your ongoing support, we are making steady progress towards our objectives and hope that 2018 will be a productive year!
