Help a 12 Year Veteran British Soldier (me) to save our local community building from being taken over by a large business chain or worse demolished and give me the opportunity to get it restored to its once former glory and bring back its community, your help does make the difference.
With over 60 Million people in Britain and 7 Billion people World Wide all that I ask for a minute of your time is to donate £1 or $1 and help re-establish a lost community.
Your help is much appreciated
To one and all

Weir is a village to the north of Bacup in the Rossendale borough of Lancashire, England with a population of 1,251 at the 2011 Census. Anciently, Weir constituted a hamlet, but underwent urbanisation and, later, suburbanisation to emerge as a residential suburb of Bacup town after the Burnley Road turnpike was built through the settlement in the 18th Century. Weir straddles the A671 road and is located by Deerplay Moor, the source of the River Irwell, and adjacent to the parish of Cliviger. Weir has one school and two pubs, the Weir Hotel and The New Deerplay (the 12th highest pub in England at 1,310ft), both currently closed for business.
