Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Please help us raise funds to cover professional fees incurred in challenging the planning applications and working to ensure The Plough stays at the heart of Appleton life.
The Plough Inn is the last remaining pub in our village of Appleton in Oxfordshire. There have been 2 planning applications submitted which have sought to build on the existing pub garden. The first application was withdrawn by the developers and the second application, made in April 2018, is currently under consultation with the local Planning Department.
The Appleton with Eaton Parish Council and the Pub Working Group have opposed both applications as they believe that the proposed development would severely damage the prospects for the village to have a thriving pub in the future. To challenge both applications, we have taken professional advice from a planning consultant.
Having a successful pub in Appleton will benefit all villagers and we are looking to raise money to cover the existing and prospective professional fees associated with the application. The Parish Council had not budgeted for fees like these and hence we are asking for contributions.
The money will go directly to the Parish Council to cover the cost of professional fees and should there be any excess, it will be used to support other village facilities.

Many thanks to you all for your generous donations towards the Plough professional fees fund. It is much appreciated. The initial target has been exceeded but as it is very likely that we will incur further fees, I have increased the target.
