It's time to solicit votes for the Summer Pub of the Year, which is awarded to the best Village pub in the Rugby environs, and Club of the Year, which is awarded to the best Club serving Real Ale in the Rugby area - this has to be accessible to the General Public.


The last Branch meeting drew up a shortlist for each of these.
