Knead Pubs owner calls for businesses in Stamford like his pubs Crown Hotel and Tobie Norris to adopt cafe culture to stop coronavirus killing economy




Businesses should work together to boost town centres and stop coronavirus killing the economy, according to pub-owner Michael Thurlby.

With businesses in Stamford, Bourne and Oakham, Michael believes it takes a range of shops, visitor attractions, and places to eat and drink to draw people into a town, and each element can’t survive on its own.

“We need everything open,” he said. “We need the clothes shops open, we need the car parks in action, and we need visitor attractions such as Burghley House to reopen.We need all this so that people feel it’s worthwhile coming in to town for a day out.”
