The Parish Council is delighted to confirm that purchase of The Plough was completed on 3 February 2021, and a long term lease granted to the community benefit society Longparish Community Pub Ltd.

LCPL are now able to move in and start work on refurbishing of the pub, and although completion was delayed, they remain hopeful that the pub and hub will be open in some form by June.

This outcome would not have been possible without the support of villagers for a PWLB loan, and the hard work of members of the community in raising funds and support for this community project. The Parish Council is extremely grateful to Andy Jolliffe and all the LCPL team who have worked with us to bring the pub into community ownership.

The handover of keys marks the start of a fresh chapter in the life of this historic village asset, which we hope will soon become a thriving, vibrant hub and pub working for the benefit of the community.
