The Nether Poppleton local community turned out in force to support their local pub. Well over a hundred people declared their unanimous support to save The Lord Nelson at a packed meeting on the 5th June.
A community action group is working hard to build a business plan and raise funds to make a bid to save the pub from closure. They have until 29th September to submit a bid.
A public meeting is being held at the Tithe Barn, Church Lane, Nether Poppleton on Tuesday 26th September to launch the fund raising effort to buy the Lord Nelson for the community.
