In this time, when the 'lock down' of people to their homes during the Covid-19 disease caused by a coronavirus SARS-COR-2  has incapacitated many firms and persons from normal activity, we should record the past actions of a local charity that is  now closed,  which gave good support to ex-service-people in the area over the past few years.

The Raven Inn.
CLHG gets action in other places : British Archaeology

The magazine of the Council for British Archaeology ["CBA"] "British Archaeology"  in their May/June 2019 issue have considered the Raven Inn to be similar to Carlton Tavern, York case and discuss both in their article 'casenotes 43 ' by Bob Sykes, the CBA's listed buildings caseworker for  England. The CBA considered the original planning application for the Raven Inn flawed (with a considerable number of mistakes) and would result in "total loss" and the "harm" would be considerable. Thus they lodged an objection. They noted that the original planning application was withdrawn just as they went to press. This was as a result of a CLHG member advising them of the application to demolish the Raven Inn.

The campaigners have set up a "closed group" on Facebook. Where only members of the group may read  entries. Should you wish to join the campaign group, you can register to join on the group page.
