    We like PubAid!

    Recently launched, PubAid collates information provided by licensees about all the great charitable work that they do day in day out across the country. The PubAid team will then put together regular "good news" press releases and information bulletins, to counteract some of the negativity that the pub industry receives.

    If you know of a pub that does great work for charity then please be sure to get them to let the PubAid team know about it at

    First Parcel Success!

    This morning, the first ever parcel to be registered using was successfully collected by UseYourLocal's founder, Stuart Mills, from the Beresford Arms in Whalton. Ian Makepeace, the landlord of Whalton's village pub was over the moon. "It really couldn't have been any easier," he said. "To be able to offer a service that is of such real use to people and to get more customers coming into our pub more often is going to be fantastic. It really is a great idea."

    On collecting the parcel Stuart was also thrilled, "It has taken us just over a year to get to this point and to see it actually working and to see how easy and useful it is for everyone is just great."

    With more pubs & clubs across the UK planned to register over the next few months everyone is looking forward to making this accessible to more and more people across the country.
