Turn the Blundell into a community pub

The Blundell Arms on its last day of opening
I know it's a bit of a long shot, but a Jason MacCormack has set up a 38° petition to turn the Blundell Arms in Upper Aughton Road, Birkdale, Southport, into a community pub. It was the home of the Bothy Folk Club for 38 years, and I've been to many private celebrations of friends there, such as birthdays, weddings and wakes. As Jason points out, it is a very large building which could successfully be used for a number of community activities beyond just being a local pub. The petition is here.


  1. The petition completely fails to mention who is expected to pay for this. Surely if the Upper Aughton Road community want a community pub, they should be prepared to stump up for it themselves.

    1. That thought occurred to me too. Either that's just an omission from the text, or they haven't addressed the question of funding.
