06/07/09 Save Our Pubs and Clubs Campaign

For those of you who are not already aware, there is a Save Our Pubs and Clubs Campaign. There is no need for me to add anything so I will just provide the information.

The Daily Telegraph (30 June) reports that:

“Antony Worrall Thompson, the chef, is among signatories to a letter in today’s Daily Telegraph calling for the ban on smoking in pubs to be relaxed. He is leading the Save Our Pubs and Clubs campaign, which claims that the ban is ‘ripping the heart out’ of British pubs. It wants smoking permitted in some areas.”

The full letter, signed by AWT and 18 publicans, some of whom attended our campaign launch last week, can be read here (scroll down):

Note: the letter will almost certainly generate a fierce response from the anti-smoking industry. It is important therefore that supporters of the Save Our Pubs & Clubs campaign write to the Telegraph echoing our call for amendments to the ban.
