Jodie Kidd backs Long Live The Local campaign to cut beer duty

Jodie Kidd, who owns The Half Moon pub in Kirdford, near Billingshurst, said pubs were the “backbone of local communities up and down the country” and urged ministers to act now to save sites from being lost for good.

The pandemic has forced pubs to shut for months at a time as the UK was plunged into three national  lockdowns. And, when they could reopen, they could operate at only a fraction of their usual capacity due to social distancing restrictions.
