Well, we thought we were almost there...but...
After months of negotiation and back and forth between solicitors, we have hit an impasse with Mr Gale. The 'Overage Clause', which the group were more than happy to include in the contract, as long as it had reasonable terms has become a major sticking point.
The additional paragraph which was drafted by our Barrister Scott Stemp, was rejected by Mr Gale, even though he agreed to such a paragraph when Councillor Chris Pearson visited him at his home in Wakefield.
We haven't given up! We are working closely with Calderdale Council to investigate the avenues we have available to us, and are confident that we will succeed in bringing the Holywell Inn back from the dead to be owned and run by the community for the community.
This is a perfect time to get involved and become part of the Holywell Community Pub.
