Heart of the community: Save our pubs! (Check bottom for credit)

We love pubs. That's why we're throwing our weight behind CAMRA's Community Pubs Month and we strongly urge you to do so too.

The Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) has announced that it expects around 8,000 UK pubs to participate in its Community Pubs Month campaign this coming April.

"With 18 pubs closing every week, this national event encourages all British pubs to sign-up to the campaign and organise a number of events throughout the month to try and entice more trade," a CAMRA press release states.

Each pub that does so will receive a free promotional pack and the use of the Community Pubs Month website to market their events for free.

Additionally, CAMRA will also run a number of national press stories during the week commencing March 25 that will include new consumer pub research to help raise the profile of pub-going in Britain and the essential role pubs play in community life.

April's campaign will then be followed by three further campaigning months, viz Pubs & Charity (July 2013), Pubs Are For Life (October 2013; and man, we like the sound of that) and Pubs: Support the Economy (January 2014).

Sadly, the Rake & Herald doesn't at present own a pub as such.

However, if we did, we would sign up straight away and we urge all publicans out there to do so immediately.

Well, as soon as they've finished serving that chap his pint of ale of course.
