Decision Day for The Cabinet at Reed

20157962_1711714782466508_5705239614256964162_o

From the “Save The Cabinet at Reed” group:

“North Herts District Council will decide whether to allow the developer planning permission and listed building consent to turn our lovely old pub into a house.

We encourage as many supporters as possible to come to the meeting at Letchworth to show support for the campaign to save the last pub in Reed. A good turnout could help tip the balance!

We’re arranging free transport from Reed but you must pre-book so we know how many seats are needed. Please PM us if you want to travel with us.”
