What Is Next For Our Local Public House
Posted by Administrator : Saturday 2nd March 2013
THERE IS NOTHING WORNG WITH A GOOD LOCAL. It is no secret that our local pubs have suffered in the last decade due to numerous factors such changing nightlife trends (Bars and Clubs), the recession (meaning people have less to spend), alcohol awareness campaigns, the general costs of ale and rent and increases in government tax’s on alcoholic beverages.
Some have survived but many have disappeared with many old pub buildings sitting derelict and becoming the local eyesore or they have been turned into apartments. What is the best solution? Do you support your local pub?
We believe there will always be a space in a community for a few good old pubs that help bring the local community together whether it is through the pub football team, local events, bands or pub pool teams.
