Nudge 4 – The Clipper

We are local residents who have been making things happen on Union Street in Plymouth for over 10 years.

The Clipper is now open – find out what events we have coming up.

Local people asked us to do something about the empty run down buildings on the street. After a lot of hard work we have set up Nudge as Community Benefit Society, we have quit our day jobs and have bought The Clipper, a pub that was well known as a 24 hour destination and has been standing empty for several years.

 You can read about our journey to ownership here.

We are renovating the building to create two homes to meet local need and a mini market area on the ground floor. We do this working with our community and in a way that invests in our community every step of the way. There are lots of opportunities to get involved. Plus our community shares enable local people to invest and have role in what we do as members.

Keep up to date and follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

We have had loads of amazing support from 165 local investors, Plymouth City Council, the Rank Foundation, Bright Solicitors, Bailey Partnership, RIO, the School for Social Entrepreneurs, Plymouth College of Art, and our local community to get this far – thank you.

Local spaces, local spend, local skills and local love…the adventure begins.

    Great news hopefully this will have a knock on effect to sort out the malt house, the palace theatre and the building opposite Aldi which I think is called the theatre bar?

    Popped into The Clipper for a cuppa yesterday, lovely welcoming atmosphere, freshly baked cakes / brownies on the bar and the baked potatoes for lunch looked yummy. Looking forward to it going from strength to strength.
