Boost for Brown Bear
Berwick's Brown Bear has now become part of the More Than A Pubs programme, backed by Power to Change.
Dave Hollings CMS Coops has been appointed by the Plunkett Foundation to support the Berwick Brown Bear team and stakeholder advisory group toward developing the exciting pub and community development project coming up in 2018.
“It’s fantastic news,” said Brown Bear director Mark Dodds. “It’s taken us a year to get to this point.”
The pub reopened last November after a year-long closure, the property having been bought by local businessman Frank Flannigan.
It is now run as a community-based social enterprise, led by Mark Dodds, a long-standing licensee and publican himself.
