you care about YOUR pub's future? We do!
How will your community cope when your local pub has gone forever?
Around 20 pubs close forever in the UK every week and this national
tragedy is deepening! Britain's pubs have become run down, dilapidated,
and are now being abandoned en masse, because of decades of chronic
underinvestment by giant private equity driven pubco freeholders.
are like glue to good communities… good pubs provide a sense
of belonging, a strong and sustained community. They are places
to meet, to make friends. Good pubs are about people, about neighbourhood
and about people's very way of life. Without good pubs communities
are diminished and once they're gone, they've gone forever.
Good pubs have never been about excessive short-term profits. Good
pubs are for the long term. Like any business, pubs must be profitable
and continually re-invested in if they are to thrive. But, first
and foremost in order to thrive, pubs must be about people, and
for too long they have been used only to extract profit and pass
it to remote private equity owners who don't give a hoot about people,
community or sustainability.
In 2013 PPP will launch the world's largest ever crowd funding exercise.
We'll raise £ millions of community capital and hit the ground
running as the strongest, hippest, most savvy and fastest growing
people owned social enterprise in the UK.
If you want to help save Britain's pubs from pubco oblivion you
can be part of the People's Pub Partnership and be part of the dynamic
force for change this country so desperately needs to save our pubs
for generations to come. Together we can, quite simply, radically
change what's happening to pubs all over the UK. It's not rocket
science... pubs need investment. And together we, thousands of us,
can provide that.

up and ready to go!
