With festive plans well under way we wanted to invite you to join us at The Three Tuns on Saturday, 29th December, 5-11 p.m. for a pop up paid bar!
We are inviting all investors and family and friends to come along and enjoy a festive drink (or two!) and celebrate our recent purchase of The Three Tuns.
There is still a lot of work to do, but with the hard work of so many people in the village over the last couple of weeks we have managed to make a fantastic start on clearing the garden and tidying up and cleaning inside the pub.
We hope you can join us on the 29th December.
We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
We had a great turnout from shareholders last Saturday eager to see inside the pub. Thanks to all those who came along. We’ve had lots of media interest and a few articles in the local press. Here are a couple:

25th June 2018
We have now agreed with the owner a process for gaining access to The Three Tuns. This will enable us to undertake a survey to determine the cost of reopening the pub. The results of the survey will provide the information we need to be able to proceed with the purchase.
21st April 2018
The owner has not accepted the community’s offer to buy the pub. Under ACV legislation she is now able to sell it as a pub on the open market. The owner has denied us access to undertake surveys, without which we would not be able to consider raising our bid. Nonetheless, our offer remains on the table.
31st January 2018
Having raised over £200,000 from individual pledges and £100,000 in grants and loans from the Plunkett Foundation, Guilden Morden Community Pub Limited submitted a bid for £300,000 subject to surveys prior to the moratorium coming to an end. We have proved that the Three Tuns has a viable future as a pub.
14 January 2018
Thank you to the 220 people who have pledged to save The Three Tuns. We will now be able to submit our bid later this month. Saving The Three Tuns is a community effort. A quarter of households in Guilden Morden have pledged to invest, with individual commitments ranging from £250 to £10,000.
2 December 2017
We had a very successful stall at St Mary's Christmas Fayre on Saturday 2 December with special beers for sale.

See above for how to pledge YOUR support.
20 August 2017
The owner of The Three Tuns finally notified South Cambridgeshire District Council
of her 'intention to sell' the pub. Under legislation governing Assets of Community
Value there is a six-month moratorium until February 2018 during which the owner
is not allowed to sell to anyone other than the local community.
The Three Tuns Community Group set up a
Community Benefit Society - Guilden Morden Community Pub Ltd. We will be seeking
financial pledges from investors plus views from everyone in the village via a survey in The Gamut and there will be an Open Meeting on 4 October, 4pm to 9pm
at the Congregational Chapel School Room so come along share your views and
30th January 2017
Since our update in November, we’ve broadened the membership of the
Three Tuns Community Group (TTCG) from 4 to 10 people to reflect a wider and younger section of the village with more diverse professional skills and experience. We especially welcome two members who moved into the
village with their families after the pub closed but nevertheless appreciate the
enormous community benefit reopening The Three Tuns would bring.
The pub is our village’s only Asset of Community Value (or ACV) and its demise
in the words of the Planning Inspectorate would be
‘an unacceptable loss of a valuable community facility’.
