A CANDIDATE for next year’s elections has pledged to support pubs and breweries.
Miles Grindey, the Green Party general election candidate for Fareham, announced he would back the campaign to keep pubs open.
He said: ‘I am proud to be campaigning for pubs and real ale.
‘Well-run community pubs play a crucial role in local life and make a massive contribution to the local economy – with each injecting around £80,000 to the local area every year.
‘If elected, I will continue to show my support in Parliament.’
The general election is in May.
