Video Transcript

Hello, my name is George Jenkinson and I am the landlord at The King’s Head in Aylesbury, which is run by the Chiltern Brewery.

In order to make sure that we can continue to operate, which we have done, we have made sure that we can sell beer for taking away, and we’ve also worked very closely with all of our local suppliers that we use normally in the pub for our menus. So we’ve now got a food hall where we can sell our fruit, veg, bread, dairy and all the pantry items you need to keep a house stocked. It’s been very popular with our customers and I’m delighted that we’ve been able to help.

We’ve used some of the government schemes, but not all of them. We’ve put some of our staff, but only a small part, on furlough. We’re also making use of the grant based on the rateable value.

Have a look, if you get the opportunity, on the government website, where all of this information will be available.
