Consumers asked to show pubs love
The Campaign for Pubs is calling on the nation’s consumers to express how much they are missing the pub.
The Campaign for Pubs is calling on the nation’s consumers to express how much they are missing the pub in a bid to highlight the role that pubs play in people’s lives and in communities all over the UK.
Its #missingthepub campaign is encouraging all those who love the pub – pub goers, publicans, brewers and suppliers – to post on an online pub noticeboard to express how much they are missing the pub and to show their support to get these venues through the current crisis.
The campaign asks people to think of their favourite things about the pub, the things they love and normally can take for granted; and the things that they look forward to doing again when pubs can finally reopen.
“All of us who value our nation’s pubs and our unique pub culture are missing the pub and the way we meet others and enjoy the company of friends and strangers alike," says Greg Mulholland, campaign director for the Campaign for Pubs. "So we’re starting an online conversation to allow everyone who loves pubs to express why they are missing the pub.
“We need governments to support pubs in all four home nations, including in the budget next week and then for everyone to get out and support them when they can finally open. But for now let’s think of all those things that we really love about our local pubs and say why we’re missing the pub."
