AS MANY OF YOU ARE PROBABLY AWARE, OVER THE PAST FEW MONTHS WE HAVE BEEN AWAITING THE OUTCOME OF PLANNING
APPLICATIONS AND CONTRACTORS MEETINGS RELATING TO OUR PROPOSED ALTERATIONS AND REDEVELOPMENTS.
FOLLOWING OUR FIRST SITE MEETING ON AUGUST 21ST, WE NOW HAVE SOME FIRM DATES FOR WHEN THINGS WILL START AND
DATES FOR DEMOLITION, CONSTRUCTION & RENOVATIONS:
WORKS WILL COMMENCE ON MONDAY 4TH SEPTEMBER
AND CONTINUE UNTIL WEDNESDAY 22ND NOVEMBER.
FROM MONDAY 4TH SEPTEMBER UNTIL SUNDAY 5th NOVEMBER WE WILL REMAIN OPEN AS NORMAL BUT INEVITABLY
THERE WILL BE SOME DISRUPTION WEEKDAY LUCHTIMES.
(NO WORK IS PLANNED FOR EVENINGS OR WEEKENDS)
WE WILL BE CLOSED FROM MONDAY 6TH NOVEMBER UNTIL WEDNESDAY 22ND NOVEMBER INCLUSIVE.
WE WILL RE-OPEN ON THURSDAY 23RD NOVEMBER.
THE WORKS ARE QUITE EXTENSIVE AND WILL COMMENCE WITH THE DEMOLITION OF THE CONSERVATORY AND THE CONSTRUCTION
OF A NEW SEATING AREA APPROXAMATELY TWICE THE SIZE.
THIS AREA WILL INCORPORATE A WOOD BURNING STOVE TO CREATE
A COSIER FEELING IN THE WINTER TIME, AS WELL AS ADDITIONAL SEATING.
FOLLOWING ON FROM THAT, A TOTAL REFURBISHMENT OF OUR TOILET BLOCK WILL BE CARRIED OUT, INCORPORATING THE CONSTRUCTION OF AN ACCESSIBLE WC.
THE REMAINDER OF THE WORKS ARE MAINLY COSMETIC, AND INCLUDE NEW LIGHTING, FLOORING, RENOVATION OF FURNITURE
AND GENERAL REPAIRS AND REDECORATION THROUGHOUT THE BAR, RESTAURANT AND COACH HOUSE AREAS. A LOG BURNING STOVE WILL ALSO BE INSTALLED IN THE COACH HOUSE.
WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOU PATIENCE
DURING WHAT WILL BE A BUSY 10 WEEKS, AND REST ASSURED WE WILL ENDEVOUR TO KEEP DISRUPTION TO A MINIMUM.

Congratulations to David and Trish McManus; legendary landlord and landlady of the Hare Arms for over 40 years on your well-deserved retirement!
And a big ‘Hello’ from us – Pat and Debs Palmer. We met, while working at the Hare in 1987 – and are pleased to be here again now! You may know us from Palmer’s restaurant in Downham Market – and we hope to see you here at the Hare sometime soon!
