Weaver Vale Pub in Parliamentary Spotlight
The Kash 22 , Frodsham, Weaver Vale, is starting the New Year in pride of place as a regional winner and national finalist in the inaugural Parliamentary Pub of the Year competition, which sees the overall champion announced on 15th January at the House of Commons, Westminster.

Launched in the summer of 2018 by Chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Pub Group, Toby Perkins, MP, the competition seeks to recognise the important role pubs play in British life and the value they add to the local communities and local economy.

Following nomination by their local MP, each pub had to submit a short video portraying the character of the pub (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SzIK7PQSJqg) and their engagement with their customers and local community. Videos were then viewed by a panel of judges and regional finalists selected, with the overall winner being revealed on the night of the 15th.

Kash 22 has built a reputation promoting musical talent and is a haven for music lovers in the area as well as providing a great community pub which supports local suppliers.

Food fans appreciate fresh home cooked dishes with locally sourced ingredients and for those that appreciate great beer a wide range of beers are on offer.

Being a central hub for the local community is a key focus, and now through the to national competition they are hoping to put Weaver Vale firmly on the map.

Chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Pub Group, Toby Perkins, MP, said: “We are thrilled at the quality of entries for the inaugural Parliamentary Pub of the Year competition. The 14 finalists’ video entries show the diverse range of pubs out there, and I know that it will be incredibly difficult to choose the winners from these entries.

“Pubs play a crucial and much-loved role in our daily life and the enthusiasm that MPs have shown in promoting the claim of their locals to this title shows the pride that our communities take in our pubs.

“We look forward to saluting all our finalists on the 15th and crowning our champion.”
