Pub is The Hub appeals to rural pubs

Posted on:

Pub is The Hub, the independent not-for-profit advisory service for rural pubs is appealing to Vale of Glamorgan landlords in rural areas to attend a pub diversification workshop they are running on 18th July at the Three Golden Cups, Southerndown near Bridgend from 10.30am. At the same time they are offering the pubs the opportunity to apply for improvement funding of up to £40,000 in support.

Working in partnership with Creative Rural Communities, the Vale of Glamorgan’s Rural Regeneration initiative, Pub is The Hub wants to encourage rural pub operators to diversify and offer new services for the benefit of their community. Projects could include initiatives such as post offices, shops, libraries, internet services, cash machines, allotments, cinemas and community play areas.

Anyone interested in undertaking such a scheme should get in touch with the Mari-Wyn Elias-Jones, Senior Rural Regeneration Officer for the Vale of Glamorgan by calling 01446 704637 or emailing

Anyone attending the workshop will be invited to stay for complimentary lunch and a chat afterwards.
