Are you a rural pub?  You can be entitled to funding from the government to expand your offer.

The Government is making available £188,000 of funding to help rural pubs across England expand to include Post Office facilities, grocery shops and libraries.  Pubs Minister, Jake Berry, announced that over 70 new projects in pubs will benefit from the funding and will receive Community Services Fund grants of up to £3,000 through Pub is The Hub.

The Government announced 76 new projects including new post office facilities and children’s play areas that will receive money through Pub is The Hub, which supports rural pubs in diversifying.

Government support for Pub is The Hub now totals over £500,000 and includes funding towards its Community Services Fund, which helps local pub licensees better understand and deliver on the needs of their local community.

John Longden, Chief Executive of Pub is The Hub said:

“This funding will be welcomed by many projects and will be a huge boost for thousands of people living in, and visiting, rural communities. Services and activities delivered by professional pub licensees (landlords) through their businesses can provide a wide range of benefits; basic groceries, library books, training courses, outlets for local suppliers and new jobs – all delivering improved levels of well-being through vital social connections.”
