Power to the people

The Hollybush Pub at Seighford

The last post was about the fate of rural villages, most of which are seeing their local services diminish, dwindle and disappear.
But n Seighford, they were not having any of that!  When their local pub, The Hollybush, couldn't find a buyer or a tenant, the villagers stepped in and set up their own pub company to run it.  Under this new management system, the pub has been running successfully for almost two years now.
People power indeed! 


  1. A good idea! The pub looks quite distinctive.

  2. Go, Seighford! Let's hope this strategy spreads.
