"We would like to thank our loyal customers and local community, who have supported us over the nine years we have been at the pub. Aylestone has a great community vibe and we are happy to be able to give a little something back at this time.” says Alan.
We are seeing so many pubs adapting to this challenging time and remaining at the heart of their communities and Alan and Sarah are doing a fantastic job of keeping their locals entertained.
The Black Horse is also supporting their community by sourcing food boxes, so people don’t need to head to the large supermarkets and hosting a food bank on Wednesday's 11am-1pm with The Emerald Centre for people who are struggling to get provisions. Alan and Sarah also help co-ordinate ‘Aylestone Help and Support Network’, a Facebook group set up to support people in the Aylestone community, whether that be helping with shopping or just being there for a chat.
“We can’t wait to open our doors again, but for now we will continue to support our community in the way we know how, by bringing a little happiness to their day and remaining the hub of the community, where people can ask for help and join us for a chat!” Said Alan.
