Support for ‘Pub is the Hub’

Trade journal Catering Today reported on the news that the Government has pledged £70,000 to the ‘Pub is the Hub’ scheme to support rural pubs.
According to the Government press release, more than 30 rural communities will benefit from expanded services in pubs including village shops, libraries, post offices and community cafes. Government funding since 2012 for the ‘Pub is the Hub’ scheme now totals £390,000. Community Pubs Minister, Jake Berry, said: ‘Our great British pubs are not only place for local people to get together over a pint, being at the heart of their communities they are perfectly placed to deliver valuable services, especially in rural areas.’
