Keep it Local

As pubs struggle to survive, Peter Day travels through villages in Yorkshire and Cumbria to talk to local activists and find out how easy it is to buy and successfully run one of the focal points for any community - the village pub. He looks at the successes and failures and asks whether sheer enthusiasm and community spirit is enough to win through. Is there an economic case for these sorts of projects or can they only survive through grants and subsidies?
