We have now set up Gussage Community Company Ltd as the organising body for the campaign, refurbishment and running of the Drovers Inn and are in a position to set up a Fighting Fund. The budget document for the fighting fund is available here.
We have already spent several hundred pounds on professional fees and as we move forward with the Save The Drovers Campaign we will need funds to meet further expenses e.g. professional fees for surveys and legal advice, administrative fees and expenses for establishing the community benefits scheme and joining The Plunkett Foundation.
