Community Pubs Month is designed to increase footfall in pubs and to encourage more publicans to promote new or existing events to attract further trade at a time when many pubs are closing.

Tony Jerome, head of marketing for Camra, said: "We know how hard many pubs are having to work in the current climate in order to stay afloat. One of the key drivers of Community Pubs Month is therefore to shout out loud about the many different ways pubs support their local communities by offering a wide range of events that engage local people and encourage them to come together."

Launching on Monday April 2nd with Community Pubs Day, the event has a website – www.communitypubsmonth.org.uk  – to give pubs free publicity for their events.

Camra today announced it was supporting the Government decision on a minimum alcohol price but was supporting an 'e-petition' against the alcohol duty escalator which was not removed in the Budget this week.
