Awards 2014

The Annual Liverpool and Districts CAMRA Awards evening took place at the KIND Centre on a warm July evening. Once again, we were indebted to Steve Yip and his Staff for looking after us and a light buffet plus a variety of beers and ciders from local suppliers was enjoyed by all. In addition to confirming the Branch Pub of the Year and the Pubs of Excellence voted by the Membership, the event seeks to reward licences and individuals who have delivered excellence throughout the year or contributed significantly to local and national campaigns. Occasionally, we reward excellence in campaigning over a longer period by presenting the Tony Molyneux Award that on this occasion went to Steve Downing whose campaigning activities can probably be traced back to the birth of the local Branch in 1974. Numerous anecdotes were shared with the audience by former Branch Chair Kevin Buckley and Steve’s friend and long-standing member, Ken Gellion. Other notable highlights were the presentation of the Roger Kirby Award to Carol Ross for her tireless campaign against unfair practices of major pub companies and the Bar Person of the year Award co-presented by Branch founder member Clive Pownceby to Kitty McNicholas from the Globe in Cases Street.
