Travel and Christmas support payments for wet-led pubs:

Here are a couple of updates regarding Travel and Christmas support payments for wet-led pubs:

Travel

The Government has updated Tier 3 (Very high alert) guidance on travel.  Where possible, you should stay local and avoid travelling outside your local area, meaning your village or town, or part of a city.

People should continue to travel for reasons such as work, education, medical attention or if they have caring responsibilities.  You can still travel to venues that are open, or for reasons such as work or education, but you should reduce the number of journeys you make wherever possible. 

You should still avoid travelling outside your tier 3 area other than for the reasons such as those above.  The full guidance can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/tier-3-very-high-alert

Update on Christmas Support Payment for wet-led pubs

The Christmas Support Payment for wet-led pubs is a one-off payment of £1000, to support pubs in Tier 2 and Tier 3 areas where less than 50% of their income is from food sales. 

BwD Council are currently in the process of contacting all businesses who they believe will qualify for the payment. Alternatively you can email the Council at businessrates@blackburn.gov.uk
