Entries are being sought for the National Pubwatch Awards 2022

Entries are being sought for the prestigious National Pubwatch Awards 2022, once again kindly sponsored by JD Wetherspoon, which recognises the work of local Pubwatch schemes and their efforts to provide safe drinking environments for customers and staff.

Finalists will get to attend a prestigious awards dinner in House of Lords on 18th October 2022.

Do you think that your Pubwatch scheme deserves recognition?  Do you have evidence of the schemes good practice? Has it made a real impact on safety in the evening and night-time economy?

If the answer is yes then National Pubwatch wants to hear from you.

The 2021 award winner was the Bedfordshire ‘Bedsafe’ scheme. Its chairman Mark Judd, licensee of The Pilgrims Progress in Bedford town centre, said: “Our award has been well received in the community and as a result we feel that we are stronger together and the night-time economy is thriving.

“On a personal level, being invited to attend the House of Lords was one of the great highlights of my career.”

Chair of National Pubwatch Steve Baker OBE said: “One of our main aims is to promote good practice and what better way to do than giving people the opportunity to enter for a national award which celebrates achievement at a truly prestigious event.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to promote the work of a local Pubwatch scheme and receive recognition at a national level.”
