Kelly and Simon Hill have been at the Tavern now for just over four years and have made a positive change to the business, So much so that, pub owners, St Austell Brewery, awarded them the accolade of ‘Best Turnaround Pub 2020’.
The pub is not in a rural setting but tucked away on a big estate which very much has its own community. Being about a mile and a half away from the main town, means that the pub relies on the local trade from families and the community, which is why the couple made a request for some financial help for a community play area.
To prepare the ground and purchase some play equipment that could be erected in the secure pub garden for the children of both the local customers and community/ families to use under the correct supervision.
Outcomes so far:
Due to the Covid-19 lockdown the play area has only just starting to be used in a limited way.
Lessons to Learn:
Kelly and Simon engaged local businesses to prepare the ground work; supply and erect the play equipment; and to finish off the project with some fencing to keep the money spent within the local economy.
