HEREFORDSHIRE'S FIRST COMMUNITY PUB
At an extraordinary public meeting organised by Dilwyn Parish Council on the 22nd February, 2012 parishioners voted three to one for the council to proceed and seek a loan, with the aim of purchasing the Crown Inn. Fed up with the uncertainty created by a succession of leaseholders, interspersed by short periods of closure, the community are hoped this initiative will secure some much-needed stability of the pub.
By 5th May, the pub had reopened after about eighty villagers carried out a thorough clean-up of the building. Two years on, the Crown is trading well, having just held its third annual beer festival.
