Just remembered there is an update on the original purpose of the blog! That’s right I never intended to write about my mad attempts to recover a broken body!
As you will recall the Walton tavern got to an agreed price but trouble with the receivers meant,like many in the group, the sale was not concluded on their side. Last moron that played publican got overrun by customers who helped themselves,smashed the building up, dealt drugs, smoked in the bar and stayed well past licensed hours.
So moron was removed and new TAW installed, along with new licence condition of no under 25, great for a family venue! The receivers called the agent to see if the only interested party (me) would be interested in adding a little to the offer!
In fairness agent couldn’t get hold of me and said given end of summer season he expected offer to go down rather than up. When I spoke to the agent we penned a rather more forthright response along the lines of please advise what you consider a fair price today given the current trading position as a blight on the licensed trade and a drug den, further please justify the price with either trade figures or business plans that accommodate the new licence restrictions.
I await am answer mostly for fun as my applet beach is calling me without a shadow of a doubt.
