The Centurion Marches On!

Volunteers who saved a Chester pub from the bulldozer hope the public will get behind their alehouse as it reopens as a community venue this Friday (September 16).

The Centurion in Oldfield Drive, Vicars Cross, will be run by the community for the community following a heroic story with a happy ending so far.

Regulars doggedly fought off plans that would have seen the pub demolished, with a 64-bed care home built in its place, after successfully arguing the pub was not just a business but a vital social hub.

And The Centurion Community Action Group Ltd (CCAG) is grateful to Chester-based Admiral Taverns for then striking a deal on an initial 12-month lease to get the pub back up-and-running.
