Villagers in Bloxham are continuing in their push to purchase the Red Lion pub and convert it into a community hub.
The steering group behind the idea has already received £200,000 in pledges from villagers and has now made a final offer to current owner Fullers and given it 14 days to accept. This means it is vital for residents to get their share purchases in promptly.
