Dusty Miller in Longwood to re-open Wednesday after £120,000 cash boost

I've been copied in today to an email from Neil Moorhouse, of Milltown Brewery, stating the Dusty Miller will actually be opening on Wednesday, February 26 from 5pm.
It looks like Thursday, billed as the opening night in the trade press, is the date of a visit by Colne Valley MP Jason McCartney.
In the email, sent to Ale Talk, Neil said the pub "will in effect be Milltown Brewing Co's brewery tap. There will be six hand pulls on the bar serving Milltown Platinum Blonde as a permanent beer, alternating Milltown's beers plus guests from local and regional breweries.
"Timothy Taylors Landlord and Black Sheep Bitter will also be a permanent feature".
