The Cotswold Hub Co. will take on a new 125-year tenancy of the golf clubhouse site as well as a new licence to play golf on the common from 1 April 2021. The company is founded by Nick Hovey and Sam Foyle. Both are local which Nicole Daw, Cleeve Common Trust’s Community Outreach Officer explains is important to the Trust. 

“Cleeve Common is a very special place for a wealth of reasons, to be working closely with people who know the site already and understand its importance to local people for recreation and wellbeing, as well as its rich history and incredible wildlife value is fantastic, we look forward to working alongside The Cotswold Hub Co. and sharing ideas together soon.”  

The Cotswold Hub Co. was awarded the bid due to its remarkable proposal, which promises to deliver a place “where cyclists, walkers, golfers, riders, wildlife enthusiasts and historians all share a common interest... the unique Cleeve Hill."
