Yes, by popular request the monthly pub night is back for a second year in Thurleigh.
As the event was so successful last year the village hall committee have decided to
make it a fixture again in 2019. The aim of the event is to provide a meeting place for
folk to socialise with friends and neighbours. Often this results in new friendships
being formed and it’s definitely a place where new villagers are welcomed.
The first night was on Friday 15 th February which saw a good number of people
meeting to enjoy the real ales, especially the barrel of Hornes’ Dark Fox bitter, a
selection of gins, Prosecco and soft drinks to name some of the choices available.
There was a real buzz of conversations as news and views were exchanged.
If you have been before do join us again this year and if you have never visited then
please do. The pub is open from 7-11pm on the third Friday of each month so put
the date in your electronic diaries and write it on your calendars so that you have a
ready reminder. Usually the sign is displayed on the village notice board during the
week of the pub, adverts are posted on Facebook and in 'The Villager' magazine and
often flyers are delivered. However, all this organisation and setting up depends on
volunteers before, during and after the event. The management committee is few in
numbers and relies on the contribution of other people who generously give up their
time to help. Thanks to those who stay to put the tables away at the end of the
evening. It’s a great help.
If you would like to give some of your time regularly or occasionally, especially to
serve on the bar, help clear glasses and fill the glass washer or deliver flyers then
please contact the chairman, Richard Singleton on 771952,
firstname.lastname@example.org or Joan Clark on 771415.
We’re looking forward to seeing you for the next evening which is on 15th March from
7-11pm. The Village Hall Management Committee
PS If you are a real ale drinker don’t arrive too late into the evening and be
disappointed when you find the barrel of guest beer has run out!
