Commencing on the Friday 9th August until 11th August, to coincide with our Ladies Charity Night we have 2 of our team who used to work in a lively city centre bar in Newcastle making speciality cocktails for you.

This event will take place over all 3 days of the weekend so you have plenty of time to taste them all responsibly.

Would love to see you there…………

Lovely to meet some of the poppy knitters today

Well today I have met some lovely ladies who are knitting poppies for the community project for remembrance sunday.

Had a love chat about relatives that fought in the great wars and all the good things that people of the village do.

So the invitation still holds and please spread the word, you don’t even have to knit, if you just want to get out for an hour and have a cuppa or even a pint with a piece of cake.

Every Wednesday from 12ish.
