Join our campaign to reduce VAT to 5%
Pubs have always played an important part in our communities and we’re keen to ensure that tradition continues. Here, some landlords share their latest news. We’ll drink to that!
Here at the Advertiser and Examiner we’d urge people to support the campaign by visiting a local participating pub on the day. All Wetherspoon pubs are taking part as are some Fullers pubs. Those that we’ve heard about so far include the Queen’s Head in Chesham and the Crown at Ley Hill – but others will surely join in as the day gets closer.
