The research will not only look into reasons for this dramatic decline in pub numbers but the impact this is having on the communities that they served. The Local is so often at the centre of our communities. It is the place to meet, talk, share ideas and keep up-to-speed with what is happening in the area.
With nothing to replace the pub, there is a growing concern that communities can start to lose cohesion, adding to a number of social problems that are blighting our communities. An increased sense of isolation, mental health problems, crime, littering, massive increases in home (unregulated) drinking, are just some of the impacts explored on this page.
If, like us, you feel this is something that needs addressing then please read on and subscribe to The Claimants and we’ll update you on our progress as we roll on down the road.
