Jolly Days

Reports that the Jolly Anglers riverside pub will now reopen are being met met with 'excitement' and speculation.

According to Facebookers the Jolly Anglers is scheduled to open at 11am on March 1st.

A spokesperson for L&J Partnership explained that the pub will operate without a tie to any major brewery and will be capable of running mini-festivals and music to suit the community.

LibDem candidate for Reading East and CAMRA member Cllr Gareth Epps previously called the green light to reopen the pub a "a massive victory for the local community" and said the campaign had been a "a spectacular success" which would prove a "victory of national significance."

Meanwhile Labour candidate Anneliese Dodds offered her support and agreed that the anti-competitive measures allowed by current law are "ripe for stamping out."

Adrian Windisch explains that the Green Party supports the CAMRA campaign to stop pub closures because of research showing 84% of people "
believe a pub is as essential to village life as a shop or post office."
