The team from Stonegate Group, have today launched a book – Short Stories from down the Pub – celebrating amazing people and stories from pubs across the country and highlighting the role that they play in their communities.
Containing over 100 short stories, contributed by both customers and employees, Short Stories from down the Pub began as part of an initiative by Stonegate to keep teams engaged over lockdown.
The pandemic has taken its toll on so many aspects of daily life, especially on mental wellbeing. To keep morale up, an employee-led team encouraged their colleagues to share stories from the pub – funny moments, great memories and heart-warming recollections were in abundance. The stories soon came flooding in and the book took six months to complete.
Simon Longbottom, CEO of Stonegate Group, said, “After such an extraordinary year, I could not be more proud of what the team at Stonegate has accomplished. Having overcome countless challenges and being more adaptable and flexible than ever, the stories in this book reminds us all of the important role our pubs, clubs and venues play in our communities.
“We are now looking forward to 19th July, welcoming our customers back in to our pubs, bars and clubs, and enjoying the rest of the summer.”
All profits from the book will go to the Licensed Trade Charity, an organisation that provides crucial help, support and advice for licensed drinks trade people. At £9.99, Short Stories from down the Pub will be available in print and digitally through Amazon.
News from the hospitality and catering industry is also being featured extensively in our Facebook and twitter social media accounts with the opportunity to engage with others in hospitality and share your views.
