FINAL ORDERS CALLED ON LEMINGTON'S LAST PUB

May 24, 2009 4:21 PM

The last pub in Lemington, which has been the centre of the community for decades, is set to close.

Regulars of The Vallum launched a campaign to keep the hostelry open, which was

supported by Councillor Liz Langfield.

"The Vallum is profitable and served a very useful function as a place for people to meet and chat. It's a great shame it is facing closure," she says.

The Lib Dems are backing the Parliamentary 'Save the Pub' campaign after a several pubs in Newcastle closed recently.

Ron Beadle, Newcastle North campaigner, adds: "The Government should do more to support local pubs by lowering beer duty and protecting pubs by changing planning laws."
