What is the Business Support?

Pubs have traditionally been the heart of communities and have played a vital part in community life. However, over the last decade we have seen a rapid decline in the number of pubs – many of them struggling to survive – particularly in rural communities. And yet the role of a pub in sustaining vitality and support for a local community and visitors to the county alike, has never been so important.

This programme brings to life a development guide for pubs across Greater Lincolnshire that has been developed by Business Lincolnshire in partnership with the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership. The pub development guide helps owners and manager to diversify their offer by developing other income streams, whether that is by offering accommodation, camping and campervan pitches, or through online and retail offers, for example; thus sustaining the heart of the community as well as supporting the visitor economy.

The Pub Diversification Programme will provide professional advisory support which has been tailored specifically for pub owners and managers. We are just putting the final touches to the programme and dates, but if you would like to register your interest in this programme, please email - please add Pub Diversification Programme in your email Subject line and one of the team will be in touch to gather more information from you via our Enrolment form and, we will then confirm the dates of the activities.


There are a restricted number of places on the programme which will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
