    Current Club Recognition Award Winners

    Phil Cowtan is the secretary and bar/cellarman for the Ladybarn Social Club, Manchester, and during his tenure he has transformed the real ale range. As a result of his commitment and enthusiasm, the Ladybarn Social Club has become a cask ale oasis in what, over the years, has become both a pub and beer desert.  

    Kay Drummond of Tanfield Lea Working Men’s Club and Community Club, County Durham was nominated for her dedication over many years to providing and promoting real ale in an area where it is scarce. 

    Nigel and Teressa Pickering of Wortley Club, South Yorkshire were recognised for their unparalleled passion for community engagement. Their commitment to giving back to the community serves as an inspiration to all members and reinforces the club’s values of compassion and altruism.
