Community-Owned Pubs Serve Shots of Social Care
While pubs are closing all over England, the community-owned pub is on the rise. An example of this business model's success is the Bevy — whose name is derived from the former hotel’s name and is English slang for an alcoholic drink — which is owned by 900 local shareholders in Brighton who raised 50,000 pounds between them.
A 2011 law protecting former pubs from demolition or a change of use by requiring local people to be consulted first has helped about 60 such pubs stay open for the people who need the social environment and assistance the most. Almost 20 local residents’ groups — like those behind The Bevy — have raised almost 4 million pounds to buy and run their own pubs in England over the last two years.
