Hello and welcome to the Badger Blog - here the aim is simple....we will update you on everything that is happening at the Badger Pub behind the scenes and what’s being planned.
The sad news is that latest figures show that there are 4 pubs being shut PER DAY (http://www.closedpubs.co.uk/ ) with many of these being turned into convenience stores or simply being boarded up and left to rot before eventually being demolished to create new properties.
No doubt you have heard of the sad plight of the Crispin on Ashgate Road (https://www.facebook.com/SaveTheCrispin) being turned into a Tesco Convenience Store. To prevent this happening to the Badger, a consortium of 5 Brockwell residents have put their money where their mouth is to add stability to the pub with a no tolerance stance on drugs and anti-social behaviour.
The new management are very interested in your input, so please speak to us on any concerns or ideas – be involved. There are a number of ways you can get in touch...we prefer you to come into the pub, but you can always phone, email or respond via social media (or indeed this blog). Shortly we will be hand delivering questionnaires to properties in the local community to invite feedback - please look out for these in the coming days.
Stay tuned to this section for regular updates on special offers, events and changes - there's a lot to come!!
