Pub Manager

We have now completed our first and second round interviews for the Pub Manager, which we held at the end of January/beginning of February. We had industry support at both interview stages, firstly with Greg Mangham, Consultant and Chair of The British Institute of Innkeeping (London), along with Ashley Bent owner of The Bell in Tanworth-in-Arden.

We have now successfully identified a suitable candidate with many years’ experience within the industry and who has a real enthusiasm to be part of our community. We are now finalising all the necessary paperwork and once this has been completed, we will provide you all with more information about our new Pub Manager and his vision alongside the Committee for The New Inn – a really exciting step forward for The New Inn!

Pub Refurbishment

We had a great turn out of volunteers last weekend to strip out the pub. The design of the bar and trading area have now been presented to the Committee and the work required has now been costed.

The essential work/repair on both the roof and cellar ceiling will commence shortly.

The refurbishment of the flat is also underway and we are hoping to complete this next week with the help of the fantastic volunteers. So don’t forget we still need volunteers this Saturday and Sunday from 10am until 3pm!

Thanks to everyone who made it out in the cold last weekend and thank you to the essential hardworking team of volunteers…you know who you are!!!
