Act now to Save Our Pubs!
Itís been six months since the UK first went
into lockdown and the unprecedented challenge for pubs and breweries
began. Pubs across the country feel like they are a scapegoat for the
pandemic, despite publicans and staff doing everything they can to make
their premises COVID-secure. Restrictions such as the 10pm curfew,
local lockdown measures and now complete closures in parts of the country
are deeply damaging trade and turnover, and knocking consumer
confidence. Yet the Governmentís financial support isnít anywhere
near enough to save our pubs from extinction. All our locals, not just
those that are told to temporarily close, desperately
need a new financial support package to help them pay wages, meet fixed
costs and help to see them through periods of reduced trade.
Targeted restrictions like the curfew mean
that pubs and breweries should also get targeted support from the
Government. You can email your MP and ask them to help convince the
Government to take this step. Click here
to send your email - it takes less than a minute and will make all the
difference to our locals. Without financial help from the Government we
could see many pubs in the Bristol & District branch area close before
Christmas. Please take the opportunity to get involved with this campaign
and make your voice heard. Local pubs, clubs, breweries and cider makers
have never needed your support more.
