Gwynne reveals data showing the huge impact of beer and pubs in Denton & Reddish

15094933_1138607122924447_1910520454204697840_n-2The brewing and pub sector makes a huge economic contribution to Denton & Reddish, new figures from a study commissioned by the British Beer and Pub Association show. The sector supports 886 jobs and provides £1.6m in value to the constituency alone. 

Andrew Gwynne attended an event in the House of Commons last week where the new figures showing the impact were unveiled by the BBPA. The study was carried out by leading independent analysts, Oxford Economics.

Andrew Gwynne said:

The brewing and pub sector is an important part of the economy. In the Denton and Reddish constituency there are 49 pubs, three breweries employing 886 people.

We must put effort into retaining this important sector, not only for the economic benefit but to retain our proud history and culture on a local and national level. Across the country the sector supports almost 900,000 jobs and adds £23bn in value to the UK economy.

Brigid Simmonds, Chief Executive of the BBPA, added:

“The economic impact brewing and pubs has on the UK economy is clear for all to see, but on a local level the large number of people earning a living from the trade has a huge impact. This new data drives home how important our sector is for a vibrant and thriving local economy, alongside the huge importance of pubs to our local communities.”
