Steve Knightley – Friday, 29th September

In a brand new one man show, ‘Unlock Me & other Lockdown Laments‘, Steve Knightley will perform material that surfaced over two years of isolation and inactivity.

Insights, anecdotes and a bunch of new songs will attempt to chronicle and draw a line under an extra episode in all our lives. BBC Radio 2 commented Committed and distinctive songs of love, conscience and history” .

Steve will be performing at Broadwindsor’s Comrades Hall (High Street, Broadwindsor, DT8 3QP) on Friday, 29th September 🙂

Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.

For The Attention Of Members Of Broadwindsor Community Pub Ltd.

From Chairman, Rick Dyke –

In last month’s White Lion newsletter, we gave notice that the Annual Members Meeting will be held on Tuesday, 27th June at 7pm in Comrades Hall. We hope that as many members as possible will attend.

We also advised that the deadline for receipt of nominations to stand for election to the Management Committee is Saturday 20th May. The deadline is set due to the time that is needed to prepare and issue election papers in advance of the Members’ Meeting.

Any members wishing to stand for election should submit their nomination either by email to rickdyke59@gmail.com or in writing and handed in at the White Lion.

Thank you.

Celebrate The White Lion’s First Birthday…

…as a Community Pub.

Already, a year has passed since The White Lion re-opened with much celebration…

This Saturday there will be no dinner service but, from 7pm, a finger buffet will be provided by Kerry & Clive who have been excelling all expectations since starting at Easter 🙂

A press release issued yesterday has Chairman Rick Dyke commenting “It’s certainly been an eventful twelve months.“. Thanking the Staff family and the many volunteers, Rick went on to say “We’re delighted that Kerry and Clive have joined us, and we’re excited about the next stage of the White Lion’s progress into a pub that is widely renowned for the quality of its food.”

Ending on a cautionary note, Rick continued “As with the hospitality trade generally, we have seen electricity costs skyrocket over the past year.  To make matters worse, the electricity companies view the trade as a bad risk with many reluctant to even quote, whereas those who do quote clearly see it as an opportunity to charge what they like.
Despite this, support from central government is negligible. Somehow, these spiralling costs need to be met and ultimately, this has to be by the paying customer.  This is where the warm welcome becomes even more vital because without it and the atmosphere it helps generate, what future does the British pub have?

On King Charles III Coronation weekend, please book now to avoid any disappointment…

 

Please continue to support our lovely pub:)
