Grant scheme for pubs launched in Allerdale
Allerdale Borough Council is urging wet-led pubs in the borough to apply for a £1,000 Christmas Support Payment.
The Government grant for wet-led pubs is a one-off payment for premises that fall under Tier 2 or 3 restrictions between December 2 and 29. Wet-led pubs are those that derive under 50 per cent of their income from food sales.
Cumbria is currently under Tier 2, meaning the borough’s wet-led pubs are eligible for this payment.
Businesses that have also been in receipt of the other Local Restrictions Support Grants (LRSG) or the Additional Restrictions Grant, can also receive this grant.
Businesses must have been trading before the national restrictions were imposed on November 5, 2020.
Final applications must be received by 5pm on January 31, 2021.
