An Ode to hospitality: Last October, Claire Bosi, Editor of Chef and Restaurant Magazine created a petition for the Government to appoint a Minister for Hospitality.
The petition gathered 209,984 signatures triggering a parliamentary debate that took place on 11 January, the debate saw a cross party group of MPs pass the motion unanimously.
During the petition campaign and post the debate taking place, H&C News were delighted to cover the work being done to promote the hospitality industry.
In recent weeks we have seen significant incoming readership through organic search for content related to the campaign. The results are spread across many different articles, as you can see here.
Bosi’s campaign aided by many including Harry Murray MBE, Seat at the Table, and many more, did much to highlight many of the incredible attributes of the hospitality industry, and raise its standard in Parliament.
Over the past year or so there has not been much to smile about in hospitality, it has been a traumatic time, so in many ways the campaign offered respite, albeit temporary.
Reviewing the coverage of the Minister for Hospitality campaign we have many fond memories of reporting on how an incredible amount of hard work by many resulted in the debate taking place, and its subsequent outcome.
One video for us stands out above the pile, and it can be watched below. It was the contribution to the debate by Lucy Powell MP, Labour, Manchester Central.
If you ever want to remind yourself that you work in a very special industry it can be watched whenever you want.
Thank you Lucy Powell MP
