A campaign’s been launched to save a Leeds pub under threat of closure.
Two weeks ago, Gina Howard, landlady of The Owl in Rodley, announced on the pub website that she would be saying good bye to the community she has served for the past six years.
Gina claimed she no could no longer afford to run the pub due to rising costs imposed by the building owners, Enterprise Inns.
But the pub has long been a popular haunt with locals and community groups who are behind a campaign to keep it running.
Enterprise Inns have not responded to Leeds Northern’s requests for a comment.
