The Bevy Pub is up against Family Investment and The Hampden Arms to win the coveted prize at this Sunday’s glitzy award ceremony at the Theatre Royal, hosted by the well known broadcaster, Nicholas Owen.
Other categories include Charity of the Year, Outstanding Pupil of the Year, Parent of the Year, The Local Hero Award, Carer of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, Beyond the Call of Duty, Achiever of the Year and The Outstanding Contribution to Sussex award.
Matthew Taylor, born in Brighton and currently living in Moulsecoomb, is standing in the Brighton Kemptown general election of 2015 and is Labour’s Nancy Platts main rival to win the seat from the Conservative MP Simon Kirby.
He says “The Bevy Pub deserves to win this award in recognition of the sterling work and achievements of the Bevy committee. A group of people with a burning desire to turn a disused pub into a community hub. They have shown that by coming together and working as a team they can raise over £70,000 in one of Britain’s most economically deprived areas and demonstrate that people power can make a difference. This award will boost the whole community and bring the goal of opening the Bevy one step closer. I wish them all the best and hope they win.”
