Pub’s Fun Day for defibrillator

THE Cross Keys Inn, a community free house in Corsley, held a Pub Fun Day on Saturday 12th August to help raise money toward a defibrillator at the pub. 

Organisers said, “People gathered to play several old pub games which are in danger of dying out.

“As the day was bright and warm, boules was played in the lovely garden.  Dominoes and cribbage were available and the darts, ring the bull, bagatelle and shove ha’penny were run as competitive games where 50p was donated to the fund in order to enter.

“The darts was won with a score of 196 in nine darts, the ring the bull winner scored 6 with 10 goes, bagatelle contestants were given 10 balls and a score of 800 won and the successful shove ha’penny player scored 8 with 15 shoves.

“This day was a great example of how our village pub can provide family enjoyment in a pleasing, friendly atmosphere with reasonably priced good food available during the lunchtime.”

The defibrillator fund has now reached £415.  Sara and Rob Burton, the managers, would like to thank all those who supported the day.
