    I have just read about the idea of having a community pub. What a waste of time and money. Did any of your members use the white swan, it was a pub that caused no end of problems. There was a reason that it failed so many times under differing managers. The bugle horn is a pub that caters for the local community. The building would be of better use if it was refurbished as affordable housing or even a food bank. Another pub is the last thing Charlton needs. I live in the centre of Charlton village and have first hand experience of the amount of times the police were called to disturbances. The society would be better employed trying to get CCTV in the village and Fletching Road, or helping to get permission for a traditional seafood bar in the village. These would benefit the whole community not just drinkers.
