Goodbye & Good Luck!

…to Vikki & Spike, now ex-landlords of Broadwindsor’s pub, The White Lion.

Vikki and Spike are off to pastures new, closer to family at The New Inn, Park Lane Off Church Street, Blagdon, Bristol, BS40 7SB. The venue appears very attractive situated by Blagdon lake and several locals have already declared promises to take a trip to visit them and of course, all will be welcomed.

Thank you so much Spike and Vikki for everything you have contributed to our village while you have been here. You have been an invaluable part of our community. You will be sorely missed but we all wish you both wealth, health and prosperity in your new venture.

What’s happening to the pub?

The Parish Council is waiting to hear back from Palmers Brewery re: negotiations of the building becoming a community run pub: initial village feedback would indicate the situation is fraught with problems as anyone taking over is subject to Palmers’ rules, ales and pricing. Click HERE to view the latest local  news at the time of publishing…. we wait.

#PALMERSBREWERY

Where will people go?

The nearest pubs out of the village are:

  • The Knapp in Beaminster.
  • The Royal Oak in Drimpton.
  • The Admiral Hood in Mosterton.
  • The New Inn in Stoke Abbott.

Final Night At The White Lion – Friday 25th June

The White Lion will be open this evening from 6pm – 10pm.  It will then only be open for one final night next Friday, 25th June.  After months of rumours and uncertainty, Vikki announced their departure on social media last night stating: “Those of you who have supported us, day in and day out, we apologise for letting you down and cannot thank you enough for your support“.
The New Inn, Blagdon
Vikki and Spike are returning to Wadworth brewery and are moving to The New Inn, Blagdon, in North Somerset near Bristol.  They will be opening this country pub in a couple of weeks.
For those wishing to visit them in their future venture, The New Inn is a dog friendly pub with beautiful views of Blagdon Lake.

Stop Press: Monday’s Council Meeting Now On Zoom

Monday’s Group Parish Council meeting, initially planned for Drimpton Village Hall will now take place online. This will enable more to take part to hear the Council’s discussions, particularly with regard to the future of the White Lion pub.
The Town Clerk issued the following this morning:

In light of the rising number of COVID-19 cases, hospitalisations and deaths and the subsequent delay in the lifting of remaining social distancing requirements, the Chairman and Vice Chairman have today discussed the potential risks to Councillors, employees and members of the public in holding next week’s meeting in-person. Also taking into consideration the fact that Dorset Council is continuing to hold committee meetings remotely, a decision has been taken to hold Monday’s meeting on Zoom once again.”

Dairy Farmer Andrew Frampton Is On TV Again

Only 4 months ago, we watched local dairy farmer and councillor, Andrew Frampton lose his opportunity to win money to buy himself a new plough on Michael McIntyre’s BBC show ‘The Wheel‘. Yesterday on social media, Andrew declared he is at it again: So having humiliated myself on gameshows its time to branch out and humiliate myself on quiz shows.

This time he is appearing on Channel 4 in a new afternoon quiz show, ‘The Answer Trap‘ hosted by Anita Rani.

  • Host Anita Rani will challenge the teams to place answers from a series of lists into their relevant categories. However not all the answers belong in the categories, some are devilish decoys – Answer Traps.
  • The Answer Traps have been set by iconic quizzers Bobby Seagull and Frank Paul, with the brainiacs competing to see who can catch the most players in their traps.
  • If the teams can assign the answers to the correct categories and avoid the traps, they get the opportunity to play for a £10,000 jackpot on the final question.

Teams?

Yes! This time Andrew is not competing alone. He has the help and extra brainpower from his sister, Gillian Yeates.  Andrew commented “Expect my usual lack of general knowledge to shine through.
Tune in or record –

  • Friday 21st May, 3pm on Channel 4

Good luck to you both!
