SCPL was established with one aim:

To purchase the Kings Arms Inn on behalf of the local and wider community, visitors to the area and other stakeholders, thus ensuring that this precious community asset is available for future generations to enjoy.

Simply stated, our objectives are:

  • To negotiate a fair purchase price with the owner
  • To raise finance via a Community Share Offer
  • To appoint the right tenant to run the pub to whom we will charge a fair rent
  • We will be responsible for the management and maintenance of the building
  • Once the pub is up and running, we intend to introduce community services and facilities to create a true social hub in the heart of Stockland village that will welcome all members of the community and visitors to the area
  • We will act as custodians of the Kings Arms, and ensure it remains in community ownership in perpetuity
