Marston's chairman, Roger Devlin, says the industry needs to make pubs relevant for young people
Brewer and pub operator Marston’s has joined forces with The Sun newspaper in a bid to make pubs relevant for future generations of drinkers.

The campaign, which was launched yesterday, invites readers to submit their ideas on the design and offer of a pub of the future.

Those who offer the best suggestions will be invited to join a board who will work together over a 12-18 month period to bring their collective vision to life.

Roger Devlin, Chairman of Marston's said: “When I was young my social life revolved around the pub. Everybody used to meet there. I began wondering what would bring young people back to their local pubs? After all, the pub is the original social network. This is where we thought up the idea of recruiting The Sun's readers to help us design The Pub of the Future.”

OK , so this confirms that Marston's don't have a clue about taking their business forward.
Will those chosen to "join a board" be rewarded for their efforts? No mention of that anywhere !
