Staff Family Give Their Notice To The White Lion

 The White Lion opened as Broadwindsor’s Community pub on 29th April 2022. Regrettably, the management team of Kate Staff with her two daughters, Chloe & Louise have given three months notice to Broadwindsor Community Pub Ltd. led by Chairman Rick Dyke.

In their second issue of ‘The White Lion Roars‘ newsletter Rick delivers the “Sad News To Share” stating that the Staff family will be leaving in mid-February 2023, Rick wished them well for their future and added that they are now looking for a new team to manage the pub and, of course, states he will keep us updated.

Coming back to the present day…. please support the pub this evening (Sunday 20th) as they are holding another one of their popular Quiz nights.  Starting at 6pm. Teams a maximum of 4 people. £3 per person. Cash only requested.

English FlagMonday is England‘s first match in the World Cup v. Iran and the pub will open at 12 noon for the live match which will be shown on television at 1pm.

Open at Christmas and a disco for New Year’s Eve (a.k.a. Hogmanay), they are serving refreshments after the Christmas carols in Bernards’ Place at 4pm on Saturday, 17th December and welcoming back The Silver Lining Band on Friday, 23rd December.

Good luck to one and all!

Local School Transport

Broadwindsor pupil Lottie Banner got a pleasant surprise this afternoon upon leaving school…. on turning the corner, there was Mum Jo standing their with her pony Cindy to take her home 🙂

Cindy attracted a lot of attention and compliments from passers by while she patiently waited.

Lottie wasted no time in putting her hat on and mounting her pony. With a confident smile, her Mum led Cindy back to their home in Hursey.
