The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of British small businesses, which is going to make it very challenging for businesses to survive.
We are just 3 normal people and 2 dogs trying to keep up together with 3 pubs that we have worked so hard to build all together. We have all given 10 years of our lives saving to buy the pubs and create a life that could be taken away in just 6 months by Covid-19.
We are situated right next to the Avon canal in Bradford on Avon and with a large grade 2 listed building we also don't qualify for any of the grants or loans that the government have released to help small businesses as our rate able value is to high due to the building grading.
We have increased value with an outside bar and canal side seating, music throughout and gorgeous outside lighting onto our pagoda. We want to continue to serve our locals, hen and stag do's and all our tourists that come back year after year to see how the pub is growing. We would love for anyone that wishes to help us out to visit and meet with us so that we can personally thank each and everyone of you.
