Save The Offley Arms

The Offley Arms Pub overlooking the pool has been through troubled times, with previous owners struggling to run it as a business, and then a fire in April 2018 forcing it to close again.

Doors have remained closed and its future has been uncertain.

The pub is again up for sale, with future possibilities that may include turning it to housing/flats, losing it as a pub to the village forever.

A community group is getting together with the aim of saving the Offley Arms as a village pub and keeping it available for the community.

Just a few small posters around the village drew a hall-full of people, all interested to find out what’s happening, and what could be done.

Coming Soon…

News and information on progress made, and the options available to the village.

A survey asking opinions is on its way! There will be an online version and a print version, with news and copies to everyone in and around the village.

What can I do?

  • Talk to your neighbours about the Offley Arms, share your memories, and let them know what’s happening. Not everyone has easy access to read the web!
  • Please complete the Online Survey! Your answers here will help to provide the background information to help make this all happen!
  • Join the Save the Offley Arms Facebook Group
  • If you can help in other ways, get in touch! Call Graham Fallows on 07780 707541 or 01782 752268.

Urgent – Offley Arms Survey

Please take a moment to complete the Online Survey by 14th October at the latest!

This will help the project to save the Offley Arms as a village pub to have the right kind of information to measure the village needs and also have the backing to seek available funding!

Offley Arms Meeting

Village Meeting

A few posters around the village highlighted that the village could lose the Offley Arms as a pub, and for anyone interested to attend to discuss at the Madeley Centre on Saturday 14th September 2019

Despite the worries of the initial group who thought that maybe there would be just a handful of attendees, the response was incredible!

Save the Offley!

Around a hundred people from the village attended, and gave their views on what they want from a village pub, and gave their support in helping to see it survive!

A call for helpers – project managers, business helpers, anyone with the kind of skills to help get a group and project off the ground, was met with dozens of people who straight away volunteered their skills.

To find out more, a new page is added to this site (until a more permanent home is available!) – Save The Offley Arms!
