SAVE THE HORNS LODGE: Campaigners face a race against time to raise £300,000 to secure the future of this village pub. Residents arranged for the pub to be listed as an Asset of Community Value in 2017 and have now set up a limited company to bid for the pub when it comes up at auction on Wednesday March 20. If successful, it is intended to refurbish the pub and reopen it as an asset at the heart of our village community. To raise £300,000 £1 shares in the company are being sold and people are being asked to provide loans of a minimum of £250. Details, including a Business Plan and Share/Loan Application Forms, are available at http://www.horns lodgechailey.co.uk. Should the company fail to raise enough money to buy the pub all shares and loans will be refunded in full. A public meeting took place at St Peter’s Church yesterday (March 7), if you were unable to attend please visit the website to see how you can help save this village pub. For more information email info@hornslodgechailey.co.uk.

PANTO: Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, Plumpton Pantomime Society’s production this year had children, at the matinee last Sunday, enthralled and their responses and interaction were truly delightful. This production of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves is vibrant, has an excellent set and wonderful costumes. It is just as a pantomime should be and a huge thank you goes to all involved for making the pantomime as entertaining as ever. The list of those involved as principal players, chorus, junior dancers, musicians and the production team is extensive, with more than seventy people making the pantomime the success that it is. I know the success derives from everyone involved but I would like to mention Charlie Wycherley as Fatima Fandango and Paul Kluge as Mustapha Screwlose whose performances were particularly exciting and their hilarity truly memorable. To find out if there are tickets available for the performances this evening and tomorrow, at 7.30pm, or the Saturday matinee call Jo Taylor on 01273 890450.
