Burnley Express - 21st May
Dave Webber, chairman of the steering group behind the bid to save the pub, said: “We have heard lots of people are waiting until they hear if we are going to achieve the target before buying their shares – we would encourage anyone holding out now to buy quickly, the offer closes on May 28th and after that it will be too late.
Leader & Times - 5th May
If the people of Trawden and surrounding areas are successful in raising enough funds throughout May, and the purchase goes through, Trawden will be the only village in the UK with a community-run pub, shop, community centre and library.
And residents should be rightly proud of this achievement if they take the Trawden Arms into community ownership.
Lancashire Telegraph - 8th May
The last remaining pub in an East Lancashire village has been put up for sale.
The Trawden Arms was put on the market last year, with the possibility it could be sold and developed into housing.
Determined not to let their last remaining pub disappear though, residents of Trawden have now come together to set up a steering group with a vision of bringing the pub into community ownership.
