Reprieved pub needs patrons

Sir,

I was pleased to see that the Foresters Arms has won a temporary reprieve, but the reality is that unless the 700 people who signed the petition actually go in and have a couple of drinks there at least once or twice a week – not once a year – the brewery will make other plans.

No company can survive without cash in the till, goodwill does not pay the overheads.

The same applies to bus services running empty – use it or lose it.
