In support of CAMRA’s key campaign to promote pubs and pub going, our branch will be introducing new Pub Awards in addition to our Pub Of The Year (POTY) Award. Unlike POTY, the new awards will not be based just on the quality of the beer but on other aspects of the whole going to a pub experience.
The first of the new awards will be to recognise “Community Pubs” using the CAMRA Community Pub Campaign view as follows: -
A community pub is “a licensed hub which encourages social interactions and puts something back into the communities it serves”. By “encourages social interactions” they mean discussions and conversation between customers, whether those customers be family, friends, acquaintances or strangers. By “puts something back” they mean to offer some facility or undertake some action which is of benefit to a community, without any motivation based on direct financial benefit to the pub.
Anybody can nominate a pub, you do not need to be a CAMRA member, and publicans can nominate their own pub. This award is for pubs ONLY and does not include clubs, wine bars or hotels. The pub also has to be in the Berkshire South-East branch area, which means it should be listed here.
The Branch Committee will review the nominations, short list them and then one or more Committee members will visit the pub to verify the nomination details. There will be no consideration made to the number of nominations made for an individual pub.
An individual may nominate more than one pub, if they so wish.
Sorry - Nominations have now closed. The result will be announced in due course.
