A community rallying to save their local pub in Tottenham has just two days left to reach a £250,000 funding target.
The Antwerp Arms is set to be converted into flats unless members of the Antwerp Arms Association can convince enough people to buy shares.
One campaigner said: “The pub means a lot to this community.
“It’s very much part of the community. It’s been here for 130 years and we want it to be here for another 130 years.”
She added: “We can sell shares to the community so that the community then owns the pub and guarantees its future.”
The group needs to raise a total of £125,000, with the rest of the money coming from a Social Investment Business grant and a loan from community finance group.
The pub to be listed as an Asset of Community Value (ACV) in summer 2013 following an application by the group, giving them the right to buy it if it was put on the market.
