Kash 22 hopes to get vote.

FRODSHAM NEWS A PUB and music venue is starting the new year as a regional winner and national finalist in the inaugural Parliamentary Pub of the Year competition.

Kash 22 in Church Street is a haven for music lovers as well as providing a great community pub that supports local suppliers.

The overall champion will be announced at the House of Commons later this month.

Launched in the summer of 2018, the contest seeks to recognise the important role pubs play in British life.

Following nomination by their local MP, each alehouse had to submit a short video portraying the character of the pub and their engagement with customers and local community.

Videos were then viewed by a panel of judges and regional finalists selected, with the overall winner being revealed on the night of Tuesday, January 15.

Based in the Weaver Vale constituency of Labour MP Mike Amesbury, Kash 22 has built a reputation for promoting musical talent. A wide range of beers are also on offer and food fans appreciate fresh home-cooked dishes with locallysourced ingredients. Being a central hub for the community is a key focus, and now through the national competition, the pub hopes to put Weaver Vale firmly on the map.

Toby Perkins MP, chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Pub Group, said: "We are thrilled at the quality of entries for the inaugural Parliamentary Pub of the Year competition. The 14 finalists' video entries show the diverse range of pubs out there, and I know that it will be incredibly difficult to choose the winners from these entries.

"Pubs play a crucial and much-loved role in our daily life and the enthusiasm that MPs have shown in promoting the claim of their locals to this title shows the pride that our communities take in our pubs.

"We look forward to saluting all our finalists on the 15th and crowning our champion."

The 14 finalists were picked from more than 100 nominations.
