From CAMRA, Campaign for Real Ale:
Nominations are now open for the CAMRA’s Pub Saving Award, which recognises communities or groups of people who have come together to save a pub that would have otherwise been demolished or converted to another use.
The award aims to secure publicity for pub-saving campaigns to encourage others to get involved in saving their local.
Co-ordinator of the Pub Saving Award, Paul Ainsworth, said:
“This award is a great opportunity to celebrate the efforts of communities who have come together to save pubs that would otherwise have been lost. This can be long, hard work, and the people concerned very much deserve recognition. We want to showcase great examples of pub-saving campaigns to honour their work, and hopefully encourage others to save their own local if it comes under threat – which is now more important than ever after the struggles of the coronavirus pandemic for the industry.
“So many pubs’ futures remain uncertain, and we want to acknowledge everyone who has worked incredibly hard to keep their local open and thriving despite the challenges faced.”
The Pub Saving Award can be made to any group which has carried out campaigning activity to save a pub from closure over the last 12 months.
Nominations are open from August until 14th November 2021
