A CAMPAIGN to save more historic Worcester pubs has kicked off - amid fears far too many have fallen by the wayside.

Worcester's MP has issued a passionate rallying call to save more city boozers, saying he doesn't want to see any further closures.

Robin Walker's bid has been backed by the city branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), which says parts of Worcester have become a "desert" for pubs.

In recent years scores of Worcester pubs have closed down and are increasingly being turned into houses.

It includes the like of the Berwick Arms in Bath Road, The Arboretum Inn in Northfield Street, The Babourne Inn in New Bank Street, Barley Mow in Sidbury and The Lansdowne Inn in White Ladies Walk, off Upper Tything.

Mr Walker says the Government has issued new powers to the public to help save more pubs from closure, but not enough people even realise they exist.

Under the Localism Act, people can now apply to get their pub listed as an 'asset of community value'.

Once a pub is listed, if the owner then wishes to sell it the local community must be given six months to come up with an alternative plan to try and preserve it first.

For each pub, 21 people have to put their names to it being included as a community asset.

Mr Walker is now calling upon Worcester people to join the campaign, saying if it drums up enough support it could prevent more closures.

He said: "The British Pub is an important national institution which holds a special place in our communities as a place to meet, watch sport and provide a significant contribution to our local economy.

"I would strongly encourage landlords and locals in Worcester to look into this process to protect their livelihoods as all it requires is 21 local electors to sign up to get their premises listed."

Mr Walker has also written to Chancellor George Osborne to ask him to freeze beer duty in the March budget.

His bid has been backed by CAMRA, which says the city has long reached a tipping point.

Worcester now has 90 public houses but the figure has fallen every year this century, and stood at more than 150 in the 1980s.

Bill Ottoway, from the Worcester branch of CAMRA, said: "The hope is that by getting people to register their local pub it could save more.

"I think it's only half the answer, because we still need to change the planning rules to make it more difficult to stop them becoming houses.

"If you look at Dines Green, for example, it's a pubs desert - places like the Drakes Drum have gone and there are more houses being built there, a church, a community centre but no new pub.

"Too many pub owners think they can make more money by selling the land for development."

Pubs only close if they are not used by enough people, if they are not a viable business. No one wants to run an empty or loss-making pub. This will be the same whether they are listed or not. It's sad, but it is a fact. Places become pub 'deserts' because the locals in those places don't use (those) pubs. Better the buildings are used for something beneficial such as housing, than left to rot.

Closing pubs is nothing new.
I was gifted a book at Xmas called Bob Backenforth's Worcester Pubs Then and Now.
Its a great book that lists around 900 lost Worcester pubs.

I used to live in Barbourne. Near Talbot and Chestnut
.
I have been to some on that list and to be honest if the locals did not use them they would shut, nothing wrong with the pubs, just that they are hidden away.
.
I do not like a lot of the busy city centre pubs, expensive and noisy, I do like the small village pubs most.
.
Probably been to half of WJS1950s list.

Things have changed over the last 20 years. Prices have risen so much that the days of going down to the local every night for a drink is out of the question.
Majority of people respect drinking and driving don't mix, the smoking ban drove many to drinking at home.
So if you don't serve meals at reasonable prices, where people eat and have one drink, you are doomed.
I'm writing this with a glass of scotch and a pint of cider (courtesy of tesco) and finding it very enjoyable.
Only ten yards from the bedroom, couldn't be better!
CAMRA you need to move into the real world.

The smoking ban put the nail in the coffin of many pubs (and I say this as a non-smoker). If only pubs were allowed to have proper smoke rooms (separate from the bar and with proper ventilation) and not force smokers outside onto the streets and car parks! Not all of us want to spend our time in quasi restaurants with children milling around! It used to be that many pubs had a public bar (where beer was 1 or 2d cheaper then the lounge) a lounge (where wives would drink their gin and orange) and a smoke room. They were the hub of the local community!

I can only see this going one way. there's so much work involved in running a pub and the competition is cutthroat. we're in a different era now. many factors already mentioned contribute to this,but I think the main reason is peoples lifestyles have changed.
