The Publican’s Morning Advertiser carried an article yesterday in which it was reported that the Community Pubs Minister Brandon Lewis will today announce that 100 pubs in England have now been listed as “Assets of Community Value” by their local authorities. The article can be found at - http://www.morningadvertiser.co.uk/General-News/Pubs-minister-Brandon-Lewis-to-announce-Asset-of-Community-Value-milestone.
CAMRA is campaigning to get 300 pubs listed as “Assets of Community Value”. Save The Red Lion Campaign is only trying to get one listed, the Red Lion! However, good luck goes out to all those campaigning around the country, as we are, to retain their local pubs.
Perhaps we should run a sweepstake inviting punters to guess what number the Red Lion will be on this successful list!
A decision from East Devon District Council to the Campaign’s request to have the Red Lion listed as an “Asset of Community Value” is due in early September.
Finally, a big thanks to Mr Black who keeps us posted about articles in the Publican’s Morning advertiser that he thinks will be of interest to the Campaign.
