|Event: Rural Services Network Meeting|
|Date: 27/01/20||Venue: Local government association London|
|Issue/campaign: Protect your Pub, Rural Issues|
|Attendees: Members of the Rural Services Network, Graham Biggs, Chief Executive, Rural Services Network and SPARSE|
I presented the case for the Protect your pub campaign and the threat offered by the big pub companies to smaller tied pubs, particularly the rural ones, where their value as a pub is far outweighed by its value as for other redevelopment uses. We looked at how we can spot and prevent this.
|Action: The Rural Services Network agreed to support the forum in its campaign and in the guide for rural communities we are pulling together with CAMRA.|
