The clear long-term vision for The Plough is for it to be a social centre of the Hanneys and the tenants will actively contribute to this aim. The community pub should be a characterful country pub with a comfortable relaxed atmosphere. It would have a well-maintained exterior and a fresh interior, which retains a traditional pub feel. It would be warm, with open fires in winter, and it would be spotlessly clean and hygienic throughout. The tenants would welcome both drinkers and diners with local real ales; and ciders; and good value, home-cooked locally sourced food from a regularly changing menu. The tenants would promote occasional events such as music nights and quizzes to bring the community together and it would have a well-maintained, appealing garden for summer use.”
Hanney Community Pub Ltd. (HCPL) will control The Plough, West Hanney strategically as an asset of the community and in this way secure its future as a comunity pub for Hanney villagers. HCPL will want the pub run by professional tenants as a friendly local with good food and some locally brewed beer at reasonable prices. The tenants would be accountable to the Board of HCPL under a tenancy agreement, which will include some community requirement guidelines. Profits made by HCPL may be distributed to shareholders by means of dividends. Sums not distributed will be reinvested in the building.
