The saving of The Plough at Longparish as a Community Pub has best far been a major success to date with the pub now in the hands of a committed and vibrant team. After closing in December 2015, the community rallied round and fought off planning applications including for housing including a subsequent appeal. Finance was raised with the support of the Longparish Parish Council along with a well-supported Community Share issue.

Work has been progressing over recent weeks to make the building safe, tidy up, carry out essential works and aim to be open this summer. The hard work has begun but it shows – never give up on a pub that looks as if it has failed.
