Havering Council

Celebrate the best of the borough’s night time businesses by voting for your favourite as part of the Havering NightLife Awards 2018.

The awards, which is being supported by Havering Council, is being held to showcase how joint partnership-working of local licensees, businesses and various agencies have helped to reduce crime and are continually improving the visitor’s experience in Havering.

Thousands of people visiting the town centres across the borough, particularly on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, continue to raise concerns among residents in relation to anti-social behaviour and drink-related crime.

The awards will combine the safety aspect but with the public also being able to vote for their favourite venues, it is also a chance to put the spotlight on those businesses that make Havering a place to be for entertainment and leisure.

From best night time venue and restaurant, to best places for families and live acts, there are plenty of categories to choose from and one voter will receive a pair of tickets to attend the awards ceremony on Wednesday, November 28, which will be held at Atik nightclub in Romford.

The council’s community safety team is working alongside the Met Police, London Fire Brigade, Trading Standards, licensing and independent assessors to inspect venues to ensure they are complying with licences and regulations.

Cabinet member for public protection and safety Councillor Viddy Persaud said: “Our pubs, clubs, restaurants and bars are essential to our borough in creating a vibrant nightime economy.

“It is vital that our residents and visitors can go out around the borough, enjoy a variety of venues, but most importantly, feel safe.

“While people can vote for their favourite place, the council, together with our partners, will be looking at how these venues offer safety and security for people on a night out and are complying to all the necessary regulations.”

Voting closes on Friday, November 9.
