The owner of a village pub in North Hertfordshire that is listed as an Asset of Community Value has expressed its intention to sell, prompting the council to ask community groups if they wish to be considered as bidders for the asset.
The Cricketers pub in Weston was added to North Herts Council's list of Assets of Community Value in September 2019, following a nomination by Weston Parish Council that successfully argued the pub furthers the social wellbeing or social interests of the community.
Now, the pub's owner, Anglian Country Inns, intends to sell The Cricketers in Damask Green Road, which has triggered a six-week period during which time community groups can register their interest to bid for it.
