Heather Gamwells, The Springvale Tavern
Heather is a Beacon publican and when asked what she thought about working with Beacon she said
“ Running a Beacon pub is like going Bowling with the bumpers up, you still get the full experience of running your own business but you always know you have got the support there to keep the business on the right path. My Regional Manager comes to see me about once every 4 weeks for meeting. Every month we discuss how the business is doing and he gives me ideas on how to improve things, he keeps me up to date with what is happening with marketing support, products and key events. We normally finish with that months Your Pub Topic. This helps me to look at areas of my pub with fresh eyes, whether it be the posters on the wall, product on the bar or how my team should behave, all there to grow sales for me. It is great that he leaves a copy of the topics for me so I can then go through it with my team. My pub has really grown in the last six months with the help of My Regional Manager and the Beacon Team.”
