SAVE OUR VILLAGE PUB!

© Save the Cabinet Action Group 2018

You can support the campaign to save The Cabinet

in many ways.

DONATE The campaign needs to raise funds to help resist the appeal by the developer as effectively as possible.  The developer who owns The Cabinet has assets and ready access to expensive lawyers and planning experts.  The Save the Cabinet Action Group is a small community group that depends on the goodwill of supporters to raise money for the expert help we need to stand any chance of matching the developer’s resources.  The developer’s appeal will take the form of a Public Inquiry - a formal process similar to a court case - involving lawyers and experts, as well as witnesses.  Paying for lawyers and experts will be expensive.  This is why we have launched the Save the Cabinet Fighting Fund The community response has been fantastic.  Through a combination of direct donations, fundraising events such as pop-up pub nights, a golf day and use of an online “JustGiving” page we have already raised (and partially spent) nearly £16,000.  We estimate we need to raise a further £12,500 before the Inquiry in November. This will need to cover, among other things: Representation by a barrister at the appeal A planning expert A surveyor to provide expert evidence on viability These do not come cheaply, but the Action Group has chosen its representatives and experts with great care so as to ensure the right balance between value for money and the quality of expertise we need. We have relaunched our JustGiving page.  It’s quick and easy to donate online. You can also donate by cheque payable to the Save the Cabinet Action Group, or by BACS (please email us for details).  Or you can donate at one of our events such as a Pop-up Pub night. REPLY TO CONSULTATIONS The planning authority, North Herts District Council, often consults neighbours and interested parties on planning matters - as does the Planning Inspectorate.  Please reply - the more responses are submitted the clearer the view of supporters will be. SPREAD THE WORD Our campaign depends on its supporters!  Please “Like” us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter, and share or retweet to all your friends.  And even in these days of modern technology, word of mouth works too! PRACTICAL HELP If you can help with fundraising or by helping to organise events, please contact us.  We always need help with organising, for example, Pup-up Pub nights, and even with delivering leaflets. COME TO OUR EVENTS The Action group has arranged a number of popular Pop-up Pub nights at Reed Village Hall, as well as other events.  Please come to them - and dig deep - these are key sources of much-needed funds! ATTEND KEY MEETINGS Some 70 supporters attended the Council planning committee meeting in Letchworth in July 2017 - an excellent turnout.  A show of support of this kind can genuinely sway meetings.  In due course we expect to ask supporters to attend the hearing of the appeal - it will be at the Council Offices, Letchworth on 6-8 November.  We occasionally host village meetings too.
