Campaign to save The Ashmore Inn

The Ashmore Inn, on Griffiths Drive in Ashmore Park is one of 202 pubs that have been sold by Martons Brewery.

A campaign has been launched to save a local pub which is facing an uncertain future.

The Ashmore Inn, on Griffiths Drive in Ashmore Park is one of 202 pubs that have been sold by Martons Brewery to New River Retail, who¬†specialise in “the UK food and value retail sector”.

Local people who do not want to see the pub at the heart of their community closed have applied to Wolverhampton City Council to list the pub as a ‘community asset’.

Other fears have been raised by local residents, such as the threat any new supermarket may pose to independent retailers on the neighbouring shopping precinct.

An online petition has been launched to save the pub and updates on the campaign can be found on the ‘Team Ashmore’ Facebook page.
