Hare and Hounds Pub

As reported a few weeks ago by the helpthehareandhounds committee, we have raised sufficient funds to buy the pub.  We expect exchange of contracts to take place either in July or August, completion in August or September and we hope to open the pub sometime in September or October.  We have interviewed a number of potential tenants and we now have preferred candidates. We cannot sign a tenancy agreement until the property transaction is complete. 

The Steering Group is very optimistic and positive on all fronts. Matters are taking a little longer than we had originally hoped, but we see this as a short pause in the long history and prosperous future of our Harlton village pub.
