A £1,000 Christmas grant is available to “wet-led” pubs which have had to close under the Tier Two arrangements in Worcester.

“Wet-led” pubs are those that predominantly serve alcohol rather than provide food, and which are therefore not allowed to open under Tier Two regulations.

This one-off payment is intended to help them make ends meet over the festive period. It will be paid in addition to the Local Restrictions Support Grant for businesses that are closed in Tier Two, which provides money for each 14-day period a business cannot open.

The following will not qualify for this one-off payment;

  • Pubs that derive over 50% of their income from food sales
  • Businesses in areas moving from Tier 1 to Tier 2 or 3 after 29 December 2020.
