Greg Mulholland’s Fair Deal for your local campaign shortlisted for PR Week Award

The Casked CrusaderYou know us! Any excuse to use this photograph.

This isn’t entirely gratuitous, because the Casked Crusader Greg Mulholland’s successful Fair Deal for your local campaign has been shortlisted for an award, in the Public Affairs category of the PR Week Awards.

The Wharfedale Observer has the story:

The campaign, backed by ten industry groups, culminated in a Parliamentary victory last year when a bill amendment was added to ensure licensees would have the right to independent rent assessments.

PR Week, one of the main publications in the campaigning and lobbying sector, has now chosen the Fair Deal scheme as one of the Public Affairs category finalists for its annual awards.

Mr Mulholland said: “It is a huge honour for us to be nominated for such a major national award and make it on to the shortlist.

“The Fair Deal campaign certainly would not have been possible without everyone who volunteered their time and efforts to stand up for hardworking publicans, so it’s a proud achievement for us to have caused the last Government’s only defeat on a legislative vote.

“November 18, 2014, was a historic day for publicans, people power and fairness.

“I have greatly enjoyed coordinating the campaign and working with so many fantastic people to fight for hard-pressed publicans.”

The winners will be announced at a swanky do on 20th October. Let’s hope that there are no important votes in the Commons that night.
