Promoting  Pubs With Southwark MP Neil Coyle

On Sat 20 Aug we visited a number of local pubs with Southwark & Old Bermondsey MP Neil Coyle to generate additional publicity for the crucial community role played by our pubs and also the challenges and threats they face today. The tour started at the China Hall, Rotherhithe and finished at the Gladstone Arms, Borough, stopping off at a number of other pubs on the way.  Click here full details and links to the press interest we generated.
