"Tell the chef, the beer is on me."
CAMPAIGNERS fighting to save the only pub in their village have raised more than 50,000 inside of three weeks. The Dog Inn Belthorn Ltd, a community group set up to save the pub of the same name, has also been successful in registering the venue as an Asset of Community Value. MORE TOP STORIES: Teenager went on drunken rampage through Tesco store shouting 'I'm Declan, I'm Declan' But members have pleaded for further support as they hope to raise 180,000 by their deadline of May 14. The Belmont Road site was bought by Great Mitton developer Ribble Valley Luxury Homes Ltd in February, but owner Stanley Ainsworth has agreed to sell it to residents if they can meet his asking price. Kathryn Sharpe, secretary of The Dog Inn Belthorn Ltd, said: We have obtained the Asset of Community Value status for The Dog Inn, which we received on St Georges Day. So far we have managed to raise 50,250 towards our goal of 180,000. Our deadline is fast approaching and we really need as much help as possible to help save our last village pub. The pub was valued at 150,000 before it was purchased for an undisclosed sum the day before it went to auction on February 26. Another campaigner, Jean Bain, said: Hopefully if the share launch is the success we envisage, then the aim is to offer a more community-minded venue. Weve looked at opening a shop facility which will sell a small range of essentials, and to provide conference facilities to local businesses at a competitive rate, as well as to re-launch the restaurant side of the business too. Ms Sharpe added: Once the pub has gone it has gone and will never be replaced. We are one of the last local villages to keep the tradition of maypole dancing. This year could be our last.

Bexhill High moved to a new site in 2010 and promised " innovative " teaching including three-hour lessons and large open plan spaces for 90-pupil classes. In 2012 it became an academy run by Prospect Academies Trust but months later was placed in special measures . It will now be redesigned under new owners, with the head saying the layout impeded the progress of students. Attwood Academies took over in 2014 after Prospect closed and will redesign the school with traditional classrooms. 'Ill-thought-out design' It is hoped the school will be removed from special measures this term. Attwood Academies chairman Tom Attwood said he was confident the investment would help move the school towards an "outstanding" accreditation. He said: "The children of Bexhill have in recent years been let down badly by an ill-thought-out building design and, worse, a dreadful implementation of the new build." Principal Heidi Brown, who was appointed head teacher last year, said in a statement on the school's website the poorly designed building had impeded student progress. She said traditional acoustically-independent classrooms with up-to-date technology would allow students and teachers to hear what was said in lessons and participate. Describing the planned redesign, Mr Attwood said: "We've spent an enormous amount of time trying to make sure that this is going to be done properly. "The right things will be done. We work very closely with the Department for Education.

Ashley Latty, 25, died after he was kicked, punched and stabbed five times outside the Beaver Centre in Dagenham at 5.30am on 18 May last year. The incident was caught on CCTV. Nicholas Terrelonge had rounded up the group of men at the birthday party of a DJ after he recognised Latty as having stolen from him in the past. Jailing four men from east London for their part in the assault, Judge Stephen Gullick said their victim never stood a chance when faced by such a group of attackers, and his death had resulted in a catastrophic loss to those who loved him. He jailed Terrelonge, 28, and Tyler Burton, 28, for life with a minimum term of 20 years after they were found guilty of murder. Kestrel Dyer, 25, and Jerome Joseph, 28, who were cleared of murder but found guilty of attempting to cause grievous bodily harm with intent, were jailed for six and a half years and six years respectively. He didnt stand a chance. The attack was sudden, sustained, utterly brutal and without mercy Simon Denison QC Nana Oppong, 34, was jailed for four years after admitting causing grievous bodily harm with intent. After the Old Bailey trial, he was found not guilty of murder for a third time, after previously being acquitted of two other murders.
