The Friends of the Ship Inn are holding a public meeting at 8pm next Tuesday.
Chairman of the friends, Roger Beam, said: “We’ll be launching a summary of the prospectus of the share issue to all residents of Aldwick and beyond in order to raise the money to buy the freehold of the Ship Inn and refit it as a pub-restaurant.
“The steering committee will speak about the project and answer any questions from the floor.”
Residents attending the group will have the chance to have their say, explore the group’s vision and learn more details.
A spokesperson for the group said: “If you’re with us, this campaign can succeed gloriously. Without you the Ship Inn is lost, probably for good.
“Spread the word and join us on November 12. It’s vital, this is our opportunity, let’s take it. Join us.”
