Save our Local Pubs - they are our community centres

Thousands of pubs are closing each year damaging community life. Local pubs do not get fair trreatment from brewers, local authorities or government and have to compete with heavy discounting and loss-leading offers from supermarkets. Again small businesses are not allowed to operate on a level playing field. Time for our towns and district councils to use the Loacalism Act and declare pubs "protected community assets"
Frome can start with the Three Swans and protect it for our community.
