Newspaper Articles
Owner Dimmy Sangha at the burnt out Hope Tavern in Cinder Bank
"The landlord of a Netherton pub damaged in an arson attack today revealed he faces a 50,000 bill to get it back in business. The bar area at the Hope Tavern in Cinder Bank, was badly burnt and it could be closed for up to a month.

Landlord Dimmy Sangha says he will give a reward to anyone who provides information that  leads to the conviction of the culprits. Arsonists broke a window and threw a burning object into the bar at around 3am on Tuesday. Mr. Sangha believes the attack was fuelled by "jealousy." But today 39-year-old Mr. Sangha said he is determined to bounce back.

The pub in Cinder Bank opened in December 2009 after a refurbishment when Mr. Sangha bought it from Marston's after it had been shut for three years. He believes up to 50,000 will need to be spent on the bar area which must be completely gutted and re-decorated.

Mr. Sangha, who has four children ranging from a two-month-old baby to a 15 year-old son, said: "It is heart wrenching to see what has happened to my pub after we put so much effort in. Everything inside was new - we've built up a good business here and it seems like someone was jealous of that."

He was alerted at his Dudley home in the early hours of Tuesday by a phone call from the firm that runs the automatic fire alarm at the pub. When he arrived, two fire crews from Cradley Heath were tackling it. He said: "I was devastated, I couldn't believe what I was seeing."

Thousands of pounds in trade will be lost while the pub is closed and , while Mr. Sangha hopes to re-open in a fortnight, he said it could be a month or longer."
