The application process for the 2015 Diageo National Pubwatch Awards will be open on 6 April 2015 and will run until 17 July 2015. It will culminate in a prestigious award dinner for finalists held in the autumn of 2015 in the House of Commons. Full details of the Diageo NPW Award and the new on-line application form can be found on the ‘Pubwatch Awards’ section of the NPW website
The award really is a fantastic opportunity for your local Pubwatch scheme to receive recognition. Don’t just take our word for it. Have a look at what two previous winners have to say:
Craig Southall Chairman of the Blackpool Pubwatch scheme who scooped the top prize in 2013 said: Since winning the Diageo National Pubwatch award we have received some great publicity for our work in Blackpool; helping to show the general public that our members strive to create a safe and welcoming environment. The award has helped to strengthen local partnerships, opened doors and given us more credibility with other stakeholders.
Alan Graham Chairman of the Droylsden (Manchester) Pubwatch scheme said: Winning the 2014 award meant so much to us, and it is fantastic to have been recognised for the effort we have put in, but also for the town as a whole. People are still stopping us whilst out and about to say well done, its about time all the pubs worked together. We have had lots of positive comments from the public since winning the award and recognition that we are working to make our community a safer place.
We look forward to seeing your application. Please take a few moments to read an open letter to Pubwatch members from Andrew Cowan, Country Director of Diageo GB.
