This financial year commences with the announcement of a new Chair and Vice Chair for the Best Bar None Board. Jack Gemmell - Public Affairs, Chivas Brothers Pernod Ricard is taking on the Chair with immediate effect as Mandy Haeburn-Little stands down.

Lynsae Tulloch, Chief Operating Officer from SBRC will be taking on the Vice Chair role as it enters into a new exciting phase of activity.

Annabelle Ewing, Minister for Community Safety and Legal Affairs for Scottish Government has supported the Ambition of the Best Bar None scheme, which aligns with Scottish Government Priorities by commenting:

"Best Bar None provides a very positive contribution to helping build safer communities across Scotland. Our pubs, clubs and hotels are often at the heart of our communities and the Scottish Government welcomes the collective approach of the key partners involved. Best Bar None leads from the front in its drive to ensure a safe social environment, a healthy approach to alcohol consumption and the opportunity to reach out across our communities on how to keep safe, stay healthy and avoid harm".
