Community spirit

The Star Inn, one of the pioneering co-operative pubs that we have supported, is holding a Beer Festival this afternoon – one sign of the progress they have made. The pub stocks local ale and will host eleven guest ales. Over a year on from being threatened with closure, as the local paper reports, the community seems in fine fettle.

The BBC programme Village SOS is turning these kind of inspiring stories into documentaries – and there is help on offer through the Lottery for others who want to follow suit.
