After months of closure across the hospitality sector, Daisy Cooper MP for St Albans is appealing to the community to share their views on the importance of the pubs, restaurants and entertainment venues alike.
The MP is encouraging customers, staff and employees to take part in a survey which will help demonstrate how the industries have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
This will help highlight their importance within communities such as St Albans.
The survey will be submitted to a new cross-party group of MPs and Daisy is hoping that the St Albans community can share their views on what the hospitality and entertainment sectors mean to them.
Daisy Cooper MP has previously demonstrated her support for establishments such as pubs across the city and she hopes the survey will help these sectors recover from the struggles of the pandemic.
She said: “Our pubs, bars and music venues are vital to making St Albans the thriving local community we all love. During the past year, all of us have been missing live music, socialising, eating out or just popping into the pub after work for a quick pint.
“The pandemic has left the hospitality and entertainment sectors facing widespread destruction, with hundreds of local businesses and their supply chains suffering, and if we are to save them the Government needs to know how important they are to each and every one of us.
“This all-party initiative is focused on finding clear solutions to ensure these businesses can make it to the other side of the pandemic, and I’d encourage everyone in St Albans to take part and make their voices heard.”
