BRAKSPEAR has been highly commended in an industry awards scheme for its community initiatives.
The Henley pub company and mini-brewer was shortlisted for the British Beer and Pub Association’s heart of the community award.
Chief executive Tom Davies and marketing manager Emma Sweet were presented with a certificate by comedian and radio presenter Sandi Toksvig at the association’s annual dinner in London.
The judges praised four of Brakspear’s community projects, which included:
• Supporting Friends of the Earth’s campaign to protect bees by encouraging its pubs to plant bee-friendly flowers.
