Last Saturday evening saw the return of what was another very successful pub and social evening at Glass Hall. The ‘Pub night’, now a regular fixture in the Glass Hall calendar, attracted a very good turnout. A wide range of the local community attended and enjoyed the pub experience.
The event would not have happened without the efforts of a number of volunteers. Jamie Wilkinson, Andrew Mitchell and Darren Farquhar helped organise the evening and ran the bar.
Guests enjoyed a wide selection of beers, wine and whisky. Many youngsters enjoyed playing pool, table tennis and darts throughout the evening.
The now famous ‘Pub pies’ served on the night sold out within minutes.
Future ‘Pub and social nights’ are planned and details will be available on the Glass Community Association website.
Organiser Jamie Wilkinson commented:
“It was a great night with a good turnout of locals, and some visitors from further afield. Table Tennis, pool and table football were popular with children and adults alike.”
£165.57 was raised from the evening and this amount will go towards hall funds.
Before we know it, it’s September and The Glass Pub will be open again this weekend, on Saturday the 10th. There will be a games table and a dart board, and pies and nibbles will be served.
Free entry, drinks £2.50 each. Everyone welcome, including under 18s.
We look forward to seeing you there from 7.30pm.
The sun shone, the ducks swam, the folk had fun. What a great day we had last Sunday at the return of the Glass duck race.
As usual we have so many folk to thank:
- To those of you who came out on the day
- To those who sold the tickets, and of course those who bought them!
- To those who helped out on the day, with the ducks, the baking, the teas. I was going to name names but know that I will miss someone!
- To Sue Brown for the prizes for the duck art
- Those who entered into the duck art competition
Talking of which, it was great to see the duck art entries from our younger members of the community, who were judged by Sue’s visitors, Angela and Nicky. The winners were:
- Primary category: Max Harrold
- Secondary category: Kyle Hanekom
And of course, you’ll want to know the winners of the duck race:
1st place (£50): Ava Sykes
2nd place (£30): Arthur Ashley
3rd place (£20): Nicola Wordie
We raised £464.41 from the event, which included the ticket sales but also £49.41 which was donated for the tea. Of course the total amount will go towards the Hall funds.
We’re already looking forward to the duck race next year!! In the meantime, here’s a few photos of the day.
