The 2nd meeting of the KPH supporters community group was held in the Theatre upstairs at the KPH on 25 November 2014.
We have a name.
Our constitution was ratified, Chairman elected, key posts including social media and press liaison voted in.
Our social media sites were launched. Our ACV Nomination document is being prepared and petitioning can begin now. Links and contact details were distributed in the meeting and in the Minutes.
Our local ward Councillor drew our attention to the Ladbroke Draft Conservation Area Appraisal wherein the KPH is listed as a Positive Building and features with a photograph. Comments are requested and we can take this opportunity to request the Article 4 Direction be applied to the KPH; it was suggested we could even request a blanket A4D be applied for all pubs in the Area. Deadline 19 December.
There are already a host of events and activities enjoyed by the local community at the KPH but that didn't stop us coming up with some more to add to their bookings diary. Favourite was the "KPH United Choir" -- plans were already afoot to get this underway, with a choir master having been approached. The support in the room was so tunefully positive, we're off to a great start. We have yoga classes held weekly upstairs and arms were not twisted to get more signed up. The Alzheimers' Society are being approached to give "Dementia Friends" talks here. We're already working on a History of Local Pubs lecture night with interest from other endangered local pubs in joining in. Photography workshops, Jitterbug lessons, youth orchestra rehearsals... it's all on the cards. Who can say we've not got it going on.
