Pub Is The Hub’s Support For The White Lion

The White Lion’s new kitchen was opened with the expert help and a Community Services Fund grant from Pub is The Hub. As they now increase their food service, they are planning to offer a takeaway menu too. You can already have one of Louise’s delicious puddings to take home if you can’t manage one after your meal 🙂

All dishes are home-made with locally-sourced produce, with meat and cheese supplied by Nick Tett Butchers, Beaminster and fish from Davy’s Locker in Bridport, and fruit and vegetables from Washingpool Farm, Bridport.

Manager Kate Staff (above) said: “The new food offer has been attracting more local people into the pub and helping to create connections. We had 36 farmers meet up on pie night which was a great way to get them talking and socialising.”
Our vision is to make the White Lion the hub of Broadwindsor where everyone feels welcome.

To book your table, please speak to Chloe when in the pub or telephone: 01308 867070.

Reg Clarke, regional advisor from Pub is The Hub presented Chairman Rick Dyke with the certificate recognising the importance of The White Lion to the local community.
The plaque reads:

This pub has been
recognised for its important role
at the heart of
local community services

So what is Pub is The Hub?

Pub is The Hub is a not-for-profit organisation, which offers independent specialist advice to publicans on rural services diversification or the options for the community ownership of pubs, so they can all provide viable local services at the heart of their community.

With a proven track record of rural project development and delivery over the last 20 years, Pub is The Hub has worked with great publicans to open shops, libraries, cafes, community cinemas, allotments, play areas and much more. Since 2013, the organisation has also been able to offer small grants through its Community Services Fund.

Pub is The Hub has helped over 600 pubs diversify, with almost 200 of these benefitting from help through the Community Services Fund.

Building on its community services work, in 2018 Pub is The Hub conceived its ‘Join Inn – Last Orders for Loneliness’ campaign. ‘Join Inn’, specifically looks to support publicans and their communities to become better connected, helping local people feel less isolated and, in the process helping to alleviate loneliness.

Recycling Bins Now In Situ

The Recycling bins have now been moved from Redlands Yard to the Comrades Hall Car Park.

They’re now at the back of the Hall by the ‘turning area’.

Thank you to Adrian & Dave for walking them down the road 🙂

Recycling At Redlands Yard

A message from Jackie Riley:

The recycling of tetrapaks and aluminium items has been going on for some years now with the help of six sets of volunteers managing a month every six months and has largely been working well with backup from Tony and I.

Recently I received a complaint as the bins were overflowing.  It is vital if you cannot manage your month or even some of it to let me know so I can either swop you with someone else or step in and help. If this doesn’t happen then we have the situation we had last week with tetrapaks everywhere and a very unsightly situation. It is also a potential attraction to vermin even more concerning.

I would be delighted to receive the offer of help from more people so I have a bank of people to provide back up.  All it entails is weekly emptying of both bins and at the end of your month a trip to Bridport recycling when you are heading that way to be environmentally friendly.   Provision of two large bin bags and that is it!

Pegs have been provided to ensure the bin bags stay secure.

Many thanks for any offers of help in advance.  This benefits us all and the planet.
