Twenty-nine hostelries across Radcliffe, Whitefield and Prestwich are in the running to be crowned Best Local Pub.
The contest asking locals to nominate their favourite watering holes was organised by Conservative Bury South MP Christian Wakeford,
The second round of the competition has now opened with voting for Bury South’s best local pub to run from today through to Friday 14th May. With the overall winner and runners up to be announced on Monday 17th May.
Urging people to vote, Christian said:
“I know that pubs have had an incredibly tough time over the last 12 months due to the pandemic. But it’s been wonderful to see beer gardens re-opening and the joy this has brought to so many local people. I know how much we’re all looking forward to pubs re-opening inside on the 17th May.
“This competition is my way of recognising the hard work and significant contribution pubs make to our community.
“Whether it’s catching up with friends and neighbours or finding out what’s happening across our towns, local pubs have a huge role in community life. Pubs are a key part of our local economy here in Bury South so we must do all we can to support them, to help retain jobs and ensure our towns remain vibrant places to live.”
