THE News has launched a Love Your Local campaign to celebrate all that is good about local community pubs.
We believe they are an essential hub for residents and that communities suffer when they shut down.
We want you to tell us what’s great about your local - let us know and we will feature the best ones in The News.
We will be urging people to support community pubs and we’ll be reporting on events and activities to show how you can help.
And we’ll be calling on councils to adopt policies that protect local pubs.
If you love your local, contact reporter Elise Brewerton on (023) 9249 2444 or email
