    I wouldn't currently put much money on the AGM / Members Weekend in York at the start of April actually happening either (which is a worry with travel and accommodation already booked...).

    There is no doubt that the pub trade will be seriously affected. All sport being cancelled will have a massive impact on loads of pubs. Many sports bars rely almost completely on people watching matches in them and some pubs near grounds would not survive without supporters.
    I was looking forward to a good day out tomorrow for the Chelsea match but I will now "self isolate" and drink a few at home! On the plus side we won't lose tomorrow !!

    A question. What would you do if you were Tim Martin? A big chunk of your core clientele is ++old +++hypertensive* +diabetic ++overweight +++god know what else. Their risk of dying from the illness is high.

    Do you shut all your pubs to increase your chances of keeping them all alive until it all blows over? Or keep your pubs open even if some of your punters fall by the wayside?


    * though mainly through reading the Daily Mail too much rather than being piss artists.
