The White Swan Hunmanby Community Pub Limited By The White Swan Hunmanby Community Pub Limited

The White Swan Hunmanby is an historic Yorkshire Inn under threat of development into housing. We hope to save it from that fate & to preserve and take forward the heritage of this venerable old pub.

Hunmanby Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

The "Save Our Swan" Action Group was formed in March 2013 by villagers determined to save The White Swan from housing development and to ensure the pub remains open as a vibrant community hub in the centre of Hunmanby village.

On the 10th September 2013 the group was registered as an Industrial & Provident Society:
"The White Swan Hunmanby Community Pub Limited" (Number & Suffix: 32195R)

We have successfully lobbied for The White Swan to be listed as an "Asset of Community Value" by Scarborough Borough Council.

What we'll deliver:

  • Ensure the White Swan continues trading as a Public House/Restaurant/B&B by acquiring the freehold premises.

Why it's a great idea:

If we succeed in our quest to Save The White Swan then we envisage that the venue will be used not just as a public house/B&B but we will also be able to utilise the spacious function room in order to promote social activities and events for the benefit of all the community whilst improving the economic viability of the village by generating employment opportunities and the encouragement of tourism.

Steps to get it done:

  • We intend to raise funds via a community share offer & grants. We also undertake our own fund-raising events.
