Pub Saving Award

The Pub Saving Award recognises people that 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.

The 2017 winners were residents of Stockbury, Kent, who came together to save a 200-year-old pub and turn it into a thriving community hub with social lunches for vulnerable people, book swaps and an internet cafe. 

The Harrow faced imminent closure after it was put on the market in September 2016. Local campaigners quickly went to work to secure the £380,000 needed to purchase the pub from Shepherd Neame by building a strong network of 140 local shareholders and tapping into the Plunkett Foundation and More Than A Pub for funding.

The campaign group raised awareness of the pub's plight throughout the local community by utilising local papers and hosting various events such as quiz nights, BBQs and performances in the village centre. Local MP Helen Whately wrote directly to Jonathan Neame to throw her support behind the community group and councillors donated funding towards the refurbishment of the pub.

The runner-up in the competition was the Craufurd Arms Community Group, which grabbed the attention of judges after saving the last pub in North Maidenhead using the combined efforts of everyone down to the local residents all the way up to the Prime Minister.
