Plough – the last push

News from the Plough at Longparish:

Terrific work has been continuing at the Plough at Longparish, the pub saved by and bought by the local community.
Enthusiastic volunteers have been working alongside professional trades people, and much of the works completed to date would not have been possible without volunteers willing to lend a hand. 


During the next couple of weeks we will have professional decorators in the bar area and up on the scaffold at the front, carpenters fixing windows, fitting doors, building seating, etc.. The last few walls and ceilings are being plastered.

While our professional contractors are moving along at pace, it’s now, more than ever, we will be reliant on the team of volunteers to keep everything else moving at the same pace.

Over the next couple of weeks we are looking for volunteers who can help with any of the following:

  • Moving materials on site
  • Cleaning and tidying!
  • Decorating – preparation work and painting
  • Putting up fencing
  • Digging, raking and weeding in the gardens
  • Ply-board flooring
  • Fitting new toilets, basins (first fix)
  • Cleaning kitchen equipment

And if you know anyone who can help out professionally with any of the following we’d really love to hear from them:

  • Bat survey
  • Commercial kitchen gas engineer
  • Commercial kitchen fitter

If you  are local and would like to help out, even if it’s just for an hour or so, please come along and join in with the fun. 
You can turn up at the Plough Inn on spec, as at the moment it’s open every weekday and during the weekends.  However, it maybe better to let us know you are coming, confirm the pub will be open, and who will be around.
