  1. SALE OF THE TARRINGTON ARMS PUBLIC HOUSE

       Members received a verbal update from Cllr Hodges about the sale of the Tarrington Arms which was recently advertised in the Hereford Times newspaper. The advertisement described how community groups are able to express an interest if they wish to bid for the pub .

Cllr Hodges confirmed that there is interest within the Parish to save the pub and a group of local people are forming a group with the intention of preparing a bid. Due to the deadline for expressions of interest (16th June 2020) it will not provide enough time for the group to become properly constituted.

It was agreed to call another extraordinary Parish Council meeting within the next two weeks to discuss this further.
