Campaign for Real Ale

Campaign for Real Ale

Glamorgan, Cherry Orchard Road

Sunday 10 November 2019

Local CAMRA members are strongly encouraged to support this campaign.

There will be a social event at the Oval Tavern, Oval Road, Croydon on Monday 2 December at 7pm (all welcome) and the next open meeting is on Wednesday 15 January 2020 at 7pm in the town hall.

UPDATE 27/10/2019: A further meeting took place at Croydon Town Hall on 23 October. Ideas as to how to progress were discussed and most importantly we are looking to keep a high profile to keep pressure on the owners, who continue to be completely intransigent.

Although in the past the owners have responded (but have failed to answer any of our 18 questions), now they are ignoring us totally. It is very clear that they have no knowledge of, or respect for, the local community and do not have even a basic understanding of pub culture.

Given the ongoing concerns about the damage to the View, South Croydon, (please see Croydon Advertiser article: Croydon Advertiser article: The View, South Croydon) we continue to liaise with the planning department pointing out our concerns about the owners' guardianship of the property.

Interested parties are progressing initial enquiries with regard to a valuation of the pub.

A Facebook page has been set up Save the Glamorgan Facebook page.
