I was looking to see if I could find out what might be happening to the Beehive and read that there is an initiative in Southwark that allows local residents to register the pub as a local asset. Then if the pub comes on the market the residents have the right to purchase it at market rate and run it as a community asset. This would stop developers turing another corner plot into a block of flats, but would we have enough local interest to run it? As Jan says it could become a desirable venue in the right hands.
