Each new year, pubs face a difficult winter of poor trading.

Campaigns like Dry January combined with dreary weather and new year resolutions means pubs, people and the economy struggle. It can take months for a pub to recover from a quiet January. In some cases, they are never able to recover at all.

Help us protect pubs this January. We want to know what your local is to you. What does it give you, what does it bring to your life? Let’s remind everyone why the Great British Pub is worth protecting.

Contribute below, or pick up a form in your local Castle Rock pub and hand it in at the bar.

We’ll be collating your contributions in the new year edition of the Castle Rock Quarter. Help us protect pubs this January using the hashtag #mylocalis on social media.
