Redgrave Community Society

In March 2017, the Parish Council was approached by the owners of the Cross Keys pub, offering to sell it to the community and at a public meeting a number of local residents agreed to form a steering group to look at the feasibility of the community purchasing the freehold of the Cross Keys.

A public consultation by way of a questionnaire distributed to every household in the village was undertaken in early May and the results along with the steering group’s vision for the Cross Keys was presented to the village at a public meeting on 22nd May 2017. At that meeting the steering group gained overwhelming support to form a legal entity to secure the purchase of the Cross Keys.

The legal entity – Redgrave Community Society Limited – was set up and registered with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in July 2017.
