Green Dragon Flying High

15th November 2013

Categories: Blog

The Green Dragon in Wymondham has beaten tough competition to be named as South Norfolk Council’s ‘Community Pub of the Year 2013’. 

Green Dragon owners Justin Harvey and his new business partner Colin Tickle were delighted to be named as South Norfolk’s top pub. Justin said: “We are so pleased to have got this award. We have been finalists for the last three years and this time we did it. I just want to thank everyone who nominated us, it’s great to win.” 

The competition celebrates some of the great things that pubs do and encourages more people to use them, which is great for the pubs and great for the local economy. 

This is the fifth year that this popular competition has been run, launched by South Norfolk Council to promote and support local pubs and their links with their communities. At a time when more than twenty pubs are closing every week across the country, this is the only competition of its kind run by a local authority.

Right from the start, the competition has been supported by the Prince of Wales’ Charity, Pub is the Hub. John Longdon Chief Executive of Pub is the Hub said: “SNC are the only local authority to have done something special to help their pubs. On a minimal budget they have managed to make it work. SNC I applaud you and wish other local authorities were as brave!”
