Caroline Lucas

To show her support for the campaign to sell shares and buy The Greys pub from it’s large pubco owner ei group, she is coming along to meet the locals in Hanover and hear their views and give her encouragement.

Come along and meet her and have your say.

Ei Group is selling 200 of it’s smaller pubs as they no longer fit with there model and the future of The Greys is uncertain without a community buyout.

The MP for Brighton Pavilion Caroline Lucas is right behind the Save The Greys campaign. She said.

“Local pubs play such an important role in our communities, and with so many at risk of closure and redevelopment, I fully support the crowdfunder to purchase The Greys and keep it open for community use. It’s a pub that’s full of character, with such potential to be an amazing community resource in residents’ hands. I wish the campaign every success, and I hope that everyone gets behind the crowdfunder so that The Greys can remain open to serve the Hanover area as a meeting place, live entertainment venue, and so much more, for many years to come.”

Wow what a great launch night at The Greys on Saturday night! The atmosphere was amazing and full of love. Thanks so much to all the people who freely gave their time and talent to the benefit of the many. Thanks also to Eilish and Martha The excellent bartenders who coped with the large crowds magnificently.

Well done Paul Adsett for organising it and Ed Jones for the sound. It would have been much quieter without you.

Here is an unedited video for flavour. Andy Roberts & The Spudguns!

Mike Hughes – Very Impressed

Mike Hughes the pub valuation expert, visited Hanover, Brighton on Wednesday to be shown around the for sale Greys pub by Richard Carter, the current tenant and Keith farmer from Friends of The Greys. Mike Hughes said “It’s good to meet such passionate dedicated people and get great info from such a knowledgeable tenant”.

The Greys is being sold freehold and free of tie by it’s owner Ei Group who currently have 200 pubs on the market as they “rationalise their portfolio” to pay down debt.
