Lease of Life for the Centurion

Submitted by mikec

For longer than most members can remember, the Centurion pub near the United Reform Church has been a venue where Chester Photographic members can retreat after their Tuesday meeting, to review the judge's awards, or analyse the speaker's performance, or just put the world to rights. In January, the pub company closed the Centurion and applied to build a care home (perhaps mistakenly thinking that a Care Home was more fitting for CPS members than a pub?).

After huge opposition from the local community, the application was refused, and the community have raised funds to buy a one-year lease.

It is the duty of all CPS members to support this achievement by concluding future meetings with a visit to this establishment.
