Pubs have re-opened after government closure as village shops ensuring locals can get basic foods and essentials. Many are providing hot food and ale for collection as well as other alcoholic beverages. Lets do all we can to support these local initiatives and maybe post Covid-19 some aspects may remain, particularly during the day. It appears that pubs that normally provide meals are continuing to receive kitchen supplies and some ales and selling them on for the time being, including non food items. Will this be a renaissance of the village shop where they have closed in the past? We hope so.
