Backing local pubs

Pubs are at the heart of our community, and many Publicans are planning for the future once restrictions are lifted.  One such example is The Inn at the Bush in Kirkbride, who have submitted plans for a play area in a little used area of car parking.

I welcome this application which will help the pub provide an increased family focus for customers.  I have supported pubs over the level of duty, and welcome landlords using their confidence in the future to plan improvements in their business.  I spoke to the News and Star on this and this can be found here
