We are the Lowther Arms Community Project, a small local community group passionate about saving our traditional pub in the heart of our village.
The pub has been here since 1847, perfectly situated on the Solway Coast, with cycling and rambling routes alongside superb panoramic views. It is a pub with potential for locals and visitors alike. Sadly the pub has closed and is for sale, possibly for development, and we only have a few months to raise the money to buy it for our community.
We need to raise a minimum of £250,000 and maximum of £300,000 to finance the project.
£250,000 will allow us to buy the pub, cover associated costs and simply open it. £300,000 will allow us to transform the pub into a warm and welcoming venue with a wider range of services, including a cafe, essentials shop and courier collection! All the additional community facilities will provide income streams that are essential for success.
If you’d like to buy a slice of our Solway Coastal Heritage, shares cost £50 (minimum purchase of 2 shares, £100). And if you don’t want a share – we’re happy to receive donations too.
So join us on our journey. BUY Shares. Donate. Tell your friends. You can also sign up for our newsletter below.
