Five pubs shortlisted for South Norfolk competition

Five pubs have been shortlisted for the third annual South Norfolk Council's Community Pub of the Year Award.

About half the district's pubs received nominations in the competition, and the five neighbourhood winners included The King's Head in Harts Lane, Bawburgh, and The Green Dragon in Church Street, Wymondham,

The judging panel will visit each pub on Monday, August 15, and the winner, which will receive �1,000 for a community event, will be announced in September.

Anton Wimmer, the boss at the King's Head, said: 'It's always nice to be recognised and to be nominated by customers. We try to concentrate very much on local life, and try to help people in the village as much as we can, as this is the only pub or business in the village.

'We try to cater to everyone and have a very relaxed atmosphere.'
