Sheffield’s Best Bar None Scheme recognised nationally
Sheffield is one of only four cities that has made it through to the final stage of the National Best Bar None Awards.
The city has been recognised in two of three categories that are awarded on the night – Best Overall Scheme, which recognises the scheme that had had the biggest impact on the local area, and Most Innovative Scheme, which is awarded to the most creative concept or initiative introduced to make a difference in the local area.
The winners will be announced at a special parliamentary reception taking place at the House of Lords on Monday 5th February.
Originally launched in 2003, Best Bar None is a Home Office backed scheme that works with the alcohol industry, police and local authorities to promote responsible alcohol consumption and higher professional licensing standards in pubs, bars and clubs. By working to reduce crime, disorder and under-age sales, Best Bar None helps to create a safer and more responsible alcohol related leisure environment that encourages people of all ages to socialise.
Sheffield BID’s police sergeant Matthew Burdett, helps to support Sheffield’s Best Bar None scheme through his work with businesses in the night time economy. The BID sponsors Best Bar None in Sheffield, and through a provision of body-worn cameras to bars and restaurants, late night shifts by our Ambassadors, and the funding of night-time welfare hubs during busy times, help to keep Sheffield a safe place to enjoy an evening out.
