The Save Baydon Lion Team is a not for profit group of volunteers working together to bring the Red Lion pub into community ownership for the benefit of the people and village of Baydon.
We want to save the Red Lion, which is Baydon’s only pub, from closure and probable development as a dwelling.
If we allow the Red Lion to close, in all probability, it will be lost forever.
A village without a local pub is a village without a heart!
Yes, there are pubs in the surrounding villages but you can’t quickly or easily walk or cycle to them. You have to make the effort to get into your car and drive to have a drink and talk with people who you don't really know.
So Baydon villagers, and hopefully supporters from further afield who are loath to see rural pubs close, have a clear choice, save the Red Lion or lose a potential community asset forever.
