A PUBLICAN has received a prestigious award.

Terry Lee, 57, has run The Red Lion pub in Northfleet for 25 years, and his service has been recognised with the awarding of a Fellowship at the British Innkeepers Institute. (BII)

"It is quite an honour. I didn't actually realise it was such a big deal, but colleagues and the people involved in licensing have all told me how rare it is, so maybe I should make a bit of a song and dance," he said.

The BII is a professional body that works to represent the views of its thousands of members, including managers, staff licensees and tenants.

Michelle Luscombe, a spokesman for the BII said: "Fellow grade is the highest grade of BII membership which is reached through qualifications and

experience according to the BII's

eligibility criteria.

"Reaching Fellow status is an outstanding achievement and recognises established professionals within our membership."

Mr Lee will be formerly presented with the certificate in April.
