Menter Ty'n Llan, a community enterprise to buy the old Ty'n Llan pub in the village of Llandwrog, Gwynedd, is urging people to support the initiative at the eleventh hour.

The initiative has until Friday to raise £400,000, and they have now raised over 70% of the target.

World-renowned actor Rhys Ifans has backed the call, saying "a good pub is the heart of the community, but it can’t be if it's closed."

Ifans has called on people to "support this wonderful enterprise!"

The pub closed its doors more than three years ago, and the initiative says the 200-year-old building could also serve as a village shop, café, and community centre.
