Pub regulars rally round doomed Bricklayers Arms

Loyal customers took the opportunity to sign a petition against the closure of the Bricklayers Arms pub over the weekend.

The 170 or so signatories are unlikely to change the mind of Enterprise Inns, which owns the pub in Hatch Lane, Windsor.

It is due to close next weekend and has already been bought by Royal Borough councillor Tom Bursnall, who plans to build town houses on the site.

This week the leaseholder Martin Higgins admitted the Bricklayers Arms was now 'a very quiet pub'. His offer to buy the freehold was turned down by Enterprise Inns.

Mr Higgins said: "I thought it might do better as a free house which is why I made the offer."

But his other pub the Prince Albert, in nearby Clewer Hill Road, is flourishing.

Manager at the Arms, Charlotte Tucker, who has been there four years, said she was 'very sad' about the closure.

She worked for Mr Higgins at the Prince Albert before and will return there part time.
