Lincs pub landlords are being urged to become a Lincs property landlord as a result of an initiative by Business Lincolnshire in Partnership with Team Lincolnshire and Heritage Lincolnshire as reported by Lincolnshire World. They are hosting the event on Tuesday, June 29, aimed at pubs looking to provide or develop any type of accommodation as part of their offer.
The ‘Room at the Inn’ project is supporting the county’s tourism recovery strategy. Providing accommodation can be a great way to boost a pub’s turnover, whether in terms of converting upper-floor rooms or outbuildings to B&B rooms, or using land to provide a caravan or camping site, motorhome stopover or glamping holidays.
Tourism is growing strongly in Lincolnshire, and increasing numbers of visitors are interested in staying in high quality pub accommodation. The webinar is designed to help pubs – both those starting to think about developing accommodation or those looking to improve what they already offer. It will cover a range of topics to help pub owners and managers, including understanding the Councillor Colin Davie, executive councillor for economic development at Lincolnshire County Council explains: “As we ease out of lockdown, this expert advice is available to help pubs interested in adding or indeed upgrading accommodation.
“For many pubs across our region, life after lockdown still has many challenges, but domestic tourism could also present new opportunities, with many people choosing to holiday in the UK, not just this summer, but for the foreseeable future. For many pubs, diversifying their offer may be the key to future-proof their business.”
This is great news for this sector that has suffered financially more than most in the last 15 months or so of this pandemic. I imagine many landlords see a very bleak future ahead as the pandemic is brought under control and financial support from the Government and local Council is scaled down. This potential income stream could be a life saver as the great staycation grips the country.
