This year’s inaugural Ei Group Awards for Excellence aims to recognise the achievements of all types of our operators from all around the country.
The awards will highlight the accomplishments of some of our most innovative and successful publicans across a number of categories.
Ei Group Awards for Excellence is open to pubs and bars of every stripe to get involved and to encourage them to compete for the top title of Ei Group Pub of the Year.
Best Community Hub
This award recognises those publicans who make a real difference to the communities that they serve. It’s more than just pulling great pints, offering wonderful food or creating a welcoming atmosphere.
It's about real heart and going above and beyond the usual call of duty for a publican to bring people together and have a positive impact on the local community.
The community events, initiatives or activities don't have to be big; just positive: championing football teams, showcasing locals' art on your walls, raising money for a charity, offering a meeting space to local committees, or even acting as the local post office are all brilliant examples of being a Community Hero.
