Free Bar-B-Q This Sunday

This Sunday, 24th August, from 1pm until 7pm, there’s a free Bar-B-Q at the Little Rose Pub in the village. The new managers, Neil and Sue, are inviting everyone along to celebrate taking over the pub. They’ll also be a full vegetarian options cooked on a separate grill. You’ll also be able to see the brand new food menu and new real ale & beer, now that the pub is a proper Freehouse and no longer anything to do with Greene King. You can also see what you think about the pub’s new decoration. This is the first in a series of special events to mark Neil and Sue now being in charge.

The Little Rose’s official Grand Opening Night under new managers, Neil and Sue, takes place at 8pm on Saturday 30th August.  People from the current owners, Wrenbridge, will also be at the pub to meet everybody. Then on Friday September 12th the Pub will host Quiz Night as part of the Village Scarecrow Festival. The quiz starts at 8.30pm. Anybody can enter a team of 6 on the night. Entrance fee is £20 per team which includes a buffet, and there’ll be cash prizes.

The Little Rose Support Group has successfully registered the pub as what’s known as an Asset of Community Value, officially making it a key part of the village and giving it some protection in the future. Wrenbridge, the pub’s new owners, want to build two houses on part of the pub garden. If you want to find out why, and also want to be kept fully upto date with developments at the Little Rose and help protect its long term future as the village’s only pub, then please email Keith: The group is making contingency plans for the community to buy the pub just in case it’s put up for sale again, email Keith if you want to be involved.

    Good luck on Sunday, with sunshine for the occasion.
    I recall the quiz nights in the Little Rose, and becoming winners of the BBC
    Radio Cambridgeshire inter-village championship; back in the ’80’s.
    Following the invitation to the pétanque champions a quiz team from the
    village/pub would be most welcome here to participate in the annual
    Franco-British quiz that I organise. It’s bilingual so no problems. A return
    visit to Haslingfield can be organised for a French team from here.
    Just contact me; Keith has details.
