This time last year, Bristol's hospitality trade was on a high after being named the best culinary destination in the world.
A year on, and many of those brilliant independent businesses that gave Bristol its award-winning food and drink scene are at rock bottom.
The Government announced last week that the city will enter Tier 3 restrictions from Wednesday (December 2), meaning pubs and restaurants will be forced to stay shut at least until December 16 for all except takeaway or delivery services.
This means they cannot open fully in the weeks leading up to Christmas - usually the busiest and most profitable period of the year - before the traditionally quieter months of January and February.
Industry leaders fear 80 per cent of pubs, restaurants, music venues and nightclubs in Bristol could shut if the city remains in Tier 3 and there isn't more support by March.
The measures will be reviewed on December 16 when there's a possibility Bristol could drop down a tier, but even if this happens business owners would face an uphill battle getting their sites ready to open at such short notice.
So BristolLive has launched a campaign calling for additional support from the government and from all of us for Bristol's hospitality industry.
We're encouraging everyone to #BigUpBristol, to shout about your favourite independents on social media, to help fund your local business by buying a takeaway or even by buying a meal for when they reopen.
It's very clear these businesses have been very badly hit and the support they've had so far is not enough. The government has announced grants but people have fallen through the gaps.
