The Comrades Arms – Open Friday 1st October

Village residents Andrew & Margery Hookings are expected back from France mid-month.  Already getting things in place, Andrew Hookings will be re-opening the Comrades Arms in the Lewesdon Room, upstairs at the Comrades Hall on Friday, 1st October at 6pm.

Andrew, who was landlord of the Half Moon in Melplash from ’97-2000, will be offering local ales and ciders on Friday and Saturday evenings from 6pm and on Sunday afternoons from midday.  He hopes to include Tuesday evenings to go alongside Nat’s Fish & Chip van.  His other ideas include:

  • running Quiz nights on Tuesdays,
  • running a pool competition on Sundays,
  • organise some food evenings a couple of times a month with local ‘chefs’ producing some simple meals.

Andrew, who is Chairman of the Broadwindsor Community Stores Committee, a member of the Comrades Hall committee, a member of the Broadwindsor Fun Group and more recently, a member of the Steering group negotiating with Palmers re: the future of the White Lion stated that all profits will go the Save The White Lion fund.  Previously, the Comrades Arms was open for 4 weeks prior to Rich and Kate taking on the White Lion and almost £2k was raised for the Comrades Hall.

Margery is running an Art Exhibition and Sale at Comrades Hall on Saturday, 16th October – Read more HERE.
