Residents have launched a £30,000 fundraiser in a desperate bid to save the last remaining pub in a Dorset village – after the last four venues closed.

The 17th century White Lion pub, situated in the centre of Broadwindsor, Dorset, is now under threat after the last landlord left in May last year. 

Over the years residents have seen the other four venues – The Cross Keys, The Oak, The Butchers Arms and The George Inn – all close and turned into residential use. 

The owners, Palmers Brewery, approached the Parish Council to see if there was interest in running the pub as a community enterprise.  

Now, a band of regulars are trying to raise £30,000 needed to get the White Lion back open again.
