Villagers turn out in force to call for the reopening of the King’s Arms

A “SAVE our Pub” campaign has been launched in Stockland following the closure of the Kings Arms.

Residents turned out in force, despite Sunday’s heavy rain, to call for its reopening.

A spokeswoman said the loss of another rural pub had left everyone feeling miserable.

Later at a “positive” meeting villagers agreed start a campaign to save the pub.

The Grade 2 Listed inn has been put on the market following the departure of licensees Phil and Debbie Reece, last month.

The freehold is being offered at a guide price of £880,000 by agents Westcountry Commercial, based in Crediton.

A spokesman said they hoped to sell it as a pub.
