Vote for Lanarkshir­e Live Pub of The Year

- IAN BUNTING

There aren’t too many constants in towns and villages these days but one thing sure to stand the test of time is a good local.

Whether you’re a drinker or not, the heart of a community is quite often the pub.

And amidst the ongoing pandemic, our locals are a welcome place to be able to visit and seek solace from what’s going on outside.

A place to socialise and wind down, a good pub can be the place you turn to in times of celebratio­n and consolatio­n in equal measure.

And throughout the pandemic, local pubs have been right at the heart of community, hosting food bank donations, offering food parcels for those struggling or isolating, and being there for those in need of a supportive shoulder and pint.

A good pub is somewhere that brings people together, that can spearhead movements and help drive change.

Good decisions aplenty have started over a pint and a chat in the pub, although there have undoubtedl­y been just as many bad decisions made there too!

But here at Lanarkshir­e Live we think the positives of a good local far outweigh the negatives.

So we are launching our Pub of The Year campaign to find the best boozer in Lanarkshir­e! And we need your help.

We are asking you to nominate your favourite local and tell us why you love it so much. Once we have our nomination­s we will go about secretly scoring the pubs put forward into a top 10.

It will then come back to you, our readers, to vote for the pub you think should be crowned Lanarkshir­e Live Pub of The Year 2021/22.

To enter your favourite inn simply tell us the name of the pub and why it should win in 100 words or less.

You can enter by heading online or by using the free-to-download Lanarkshir­e Live app.

And if you’re a landlord or landlady then here is your chance to pull a favour from your customers instead of pulling them a pint.

Get them to put you forward and make sure you are sharing your efforts to win the title on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
