Your Local Needs You! Now!

March 2020

Local pubs, restaurants, hotels, shops and cafés play a central role in the lives of people and their community. They are the venues that host birthdays, anniversaries, christenings, weddings and all manner of celebrations.  For this reason they are crucial to the precious memories we all have and the memories still to come.

So as COVID-19 continues to wreak havoc across the UK and the hospitality sector continues to be decimated, it’s time we #LoveYourLocal and ensure they survive.

While many venues have had to close completely, many others are keeping afloat by working together and being creative with their offerings and services to support the local community.

If we can all follow and support our local pub or restaurant during this crisis, it will ensure that as many of our places to eat, drink and be merry will remain open for years to come.

So we’re asking everything to #LoveYourLocal, buy from them where possible, promote them and support them through these difficult times.

This article will be updated throughout the crisis with some fantastic initiatives and offers being run by our customers.  Please support them as best you can.
