Public Respond Positively To Pubs

The Publican’s Morning Advertiser has reported upon the recent survey that pub campaign group It’s Better Down The Pub has undertaken to test how the public respond to pubs.

In the survey over half of respondents (52%) said that they believed pubs had a positive impact upon community life. Respondents to the survey also overwhelmingly (89%) said that they felt that pubs offered a safe environment within which to socialise.

All in all, the article reports that pubs were seen in a very positive light by those who responded to the survey. Hopefully, the public will get behind their local pubs and support them as they seek to stay in business.
