Sad farewell to our local pubs

Have your say

Sad to see my ex local the Springfield Tavern and the Devonshire Arms close in recent months.

These pubs and more survived the Thatcher recession, post-war gloom, and the depression of the 1930s.

They relied on local custom. It’s no coincidence that pubs like these are in areas that are becoming increasingly populated by non-EU migrants, it isn’t their culture to drink.

Our way of life is dying.
