Like many landlords, Greene King is pausing the rent for its pub landlords during the COVID19 pandemic, which is welcomed, but the amount due will continue to accrue and Greene King is still currently expecting to be paid what is due (£10,000s) when the pandemic is over.

Our local Greene King village pubs in Linton Cambs, The Dog & Duck and The Waggon and Horses, will not be able to absorb these costs with no income coming in during the crisis.

Over the past decade, these pubs have becoming a joyous pulsing heart of the local community, a place where our families and friends come together celebrate the good times and commiserate the bad. Many will remember the hole left by temporary landlords and neither the community, nor we’re sure the owners, want to see a return to these times.

These pubs are a vital part of our social community and deserve the support of the company they generate revenue for in normal conditions.

We are campaigning for Greene King to abolish, not simply delay, rent payments on its pubs in Linton (if not all its pubs), until a time when the government no longer restricts social movement due to the Covid 19 pandemic.
