Villagers urged to unite and save the Rose and Crown pub, beside the River Wissey at Hilgay, near Downham Market

Villagers are being urged to unite and save their local pub.

The Rose and Crown in Hilgay, near Downham Market, has been put up for sale for �375,000 and around 60 people attended the meeting at the pub last week to discuss a possible community buy out.

Landlady Linda Scott, who rents the pub, fears the pub could be lost forever if villagers don't buy it.

She said: 'It was a very positive meeting and people have now gone away to have a think about what was said.

'We don't know what is going to happen next because it will all depend if people come back to us or not.'
