Goodmanham Arms

Following a submission by the Parish Council the Goodmanham Arms has been designated as an Asset of Community Value. This means that should the pub be put up for sale at some time in the future there would be a moratorium to allow the community to prepare a bid to acquire it. This power has been used successfully in a number of other parishes to retain pubs threatened with closure and disposal for alternative uses.
