Communities encouraged to bid for new cash to save their locals
CAMRA welcomes latest round of Government funding to save pubs as community assets
Commenting on the launch of the third round of the Government’s Community Ownership Fund which helps communities to save their local pub as a community asset, CAMRA Chairman Nik Antona said:
“Our locals are a vital part of both our social fabric and our local economies. They deserve to be protected as community assets which is why more and more local people up and down the country are taking over their local as a community-owned pub when it is faced with closure, demolition or conversion.
“It is really encouraging to see Levelling Up Ministers announcing today that another round of funding is being made available through the Government’s Community Ownership Fund. This funding is a lifeline for local people who have come together to save their local pub and keep it at the heart of community life.
“I hope that as many communities as possible that are looking to save their local pub submit bids for funding. Anyone interested in saving their local pub can find in-depth guides with all the tools campaigners need on CAMRA’s website – www.camra.org.uk/saveyourlocal/.”
