Support pubs across Kent offering takeaways and deliveries with our campaign, Love Your Local

Popping to the pub is one of the top things many of us are missing during the current crisis, which has seen our county’s pubs - often the hubs of our communities - forced to close their doors to regulars in line with government guidelines.

It may be some time before we can enjoy a drink together again at the bar, but there is a glimmer of hope.

Boozers big and small have begun to diversify, and begun to open their doors - at least for takeaways and deliveries.

We want to raise a glass to our much-loved pubs of all shapes and sizes and from all across the county from Deal to Dartford and Cranbrook to Canterbury.

They may be small village hostelries or seaside spots, but they all have one thing in common - we love them, and we want them to be there for us when lockdown is done and dusted.

This is why we are launching Love Your Local, to show them that we all care.

We’ll be featuring pubs providing pints for delivery and takeaway, as well as those that are currently just offering a takeaway food service.

Here’s how you can get involved...

If you run a pub

We want you to get in touch with us and let us know what’s been going on at your pub during lockdown. Tell us about the changes you have made and how you are still serving your local community. In return we will give you a free advert inside What’s On.

We will also be writing stories, covering as many pubs as possible, to appear in your local paper plus on KentOnline.

If your pub isn’t open yet, contact us in a few weeks, and we will let all of our readers - and your customers - know about your reopening plans.

To have your pub featured in Love Your Local email whatsoneditor@thekmgroup.co.uk with details of your pub, and what you have on offer and how to contact you.

If you love your local

If you’re missing your regular trip to the pub we would love you to get in touch. Email us at whatsoneditor@thekmgroup.co.uk and tell us what you’re missing most or any news you may have about your pub’s plans to reopen. You can also send us any photos you may have taken over lockdown of your local - or maybe you raising a glass to it at your home. In the coming weeks we will do our best to support all of the county’s pubs as we know how much they mean to you.
