The Doxey Arms

A meeting to explore the future plans for the Doxey Arms was very well attended. At times things became a little heated as concerns were expressed about the long term prospects for the building. When the full plans were explained by the new owner, Richard Dixon, it appeared that many people were satisfied that the development would not harm Doxey. The impact of parking in The Crescent was raised and needs to be addressed by the local authorities.
