Parliament Square on Monday 7th December 2020 to
KEEP HOSPITALITY ALIVE
Just as we were gearing up to re-open our businesses, the new tier restrictions from December 2nd make hospitality the scapegoat once again. The loss of vital Christmas trade will be the final straw for many restaurants, bars, pubs and hotels hoping to survive into 2021. Add on ever-increasing rent debt, amongst other costs, and the future is frightening for tens of thousands of businesses and their employees. While the furlough scheme is enabling hospitality workers to make ends meet, their jobs simply won’t exist once their employers’ businesses fold in the coming months.
The government can’t have it both ways:
HOSPITALITY NEEDS EITHER FEWER RESTRICTIONS OR MORE GOVERNMENT SUPPORT before the unthinkable happens.
Join this peaceful (but noisy!) protest in front of parliament to make your voice heard and to urge the government to revise it’s policies relating to hospitality venues, in terms of restrictions and above all, financial support. Bring the tools of your trade to MAKE AS MUCH NOISE AS POSSIBLE, e.g pots, pans, ladles, cocktail shakers, wooden spoons, whisks and last orders bells. Wear your work uniform especially chef’s whites, aprons, FOH uniforms etc.
If you wish to attend you must register for this event, and follow some simple but essential rules. Find more info in the official HospoDemo Website!
