Re People's Pub Partnership narratives

Mark, Thanks.

The People's Pub Partnership is a business proposition which deals with all the issues touched on in the above thread, it's outlined on my linked in profile - it's well worked through on overall principles and needs more to be done on detail. I've been working it hard and have a lot of interest from CAMRA, Employee Ownership Association, IPPR, Young Foundation, John Lewis, Imperial College, Co-operatives UK, Plunkett Foundation and many others I've talked it through with at length. Trudy Thompson, who set up Bricks and Bread is keen to be the lead on zero waste refurbishments and low carbon retrofitting for the estate; Arthur Potts Dawson is interested to be non-exec director with responsibility for local food chain, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall is happy to endorse the business plan, Mike Belben, who's one of the founders of the Eagle in Farringdon Road, London is also interested to be a non-exec with general overview on concept authenticity.

When pubs are well appointed and well run - they are busy - and if they are free of tie, they are very profitable and throw off a lot of cash. It will work successfully financially and once seed capital is raised within a short time, two years likely, it will be self financing.

Just thought I'd tell you this - I'm working through my narratives and all the practice I get helps.

How's China?
