The White Lion To Show World Cup Matches On TV

The Staff family at the White Lion Community Pub announced earlier “We’ve got a telly!

“By popular request, we’re planning to show major sporting events which are on terrestrial television and involve the national team.
(But rest assured, your community pub is NOT becoming a sports bar and the telly will be put away when it’s not being used.)
First up is the World Cup!
We intend showing all the England games in the group stages at times shown below and when, we hope, England progress to the knockout stages.”

  • Monday 21st November – England v. Iran
    Live at 1pm. The pub will be open from 12 noon – 3pm.
    Basket food will be available to order before kick-off and will be served at half time.
  • Friday 25th November – England v. USA
    Kick off at 7pm.
    Basket food will be available to order before kick-off and will be served at half time.
  • Tuesday 29th November – England v. Wales
    Kick off at 7pm.
    Customers can eat their fish and chips in the pub or order a basket meal prior to kick-off, which will be served at half time.

When England progress to the knockout stages, they will be playing in the last 16 on either Saturday 3rd December at 3pm or Sunday 4th at 7pm.
If having successfully overcome the opposition, England is involved in the quarter finals, these will be either Friday 9th December at 7pm or Saturday 10th at 7pm.
If they win their quarter final, England will play their semi-final on either Tuesday 13th December at 7pm or Wednesday 14th at 7pm.

Good Luck England!

Motor Cycling Club 120th Anniversary Course Through Common Water Lane

The Motor Cycling Club (MCC)’s 120th Anniversary Dick Peachey Three Day Trial, named to honour their former Chairman Dick Peachey who died earlier this year, sees around 100 classic bikes and cars tackle a 530-mile course including on technical off-road trials sections.

It starts in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire on Friday, 24th June and go to Exeter and back AND includes Common Water Lane. The first cars are anticipated from 11.40am on Friday, 24th for approximately 3 hours maximum. Residents of Common Water Lane have been informed.

The Motor Cycling Club is one of the oldest in the world. At the turn of the 20th Century, a small handful of automotive pioneers established the Club with one mission in mind. To test themselves and their machinery by trekking along the unmade and unlit roads and hills between London and Edinburgh and back. The long distance Classic reliability trial was born.

The Club remains the only one that caters for such events in modern times, and takes much pride in this fact. Over 120 years of competition to date and their events are still capable of testing drivers and riders along with their machinery. These days, those unsurfaced hills have become synonymous with the Club and it’s trials, whether they’re in the Peaks or the South West.

There will be a whole range of bikes, side cars and 2 wheel drive cars on standard road tyres, from pre-war to homemade and everything inbetween, so if you’d like to watch, there should be something interesting to see passing by!
