Last week the Bevy celebrated its first birthday, and the week showcased how we are so much more than just a pub.
For our birthday party who better than the fab Fish Brothers to entertain a packed Bevy. Our community choir sang on the Monday and on Wednesday evening Lee and Karen Sullivan treated 30 adults with learning disabilities from Spiral, to a Christmas meal and a drink.
On Thursday sixty older residents were served a Christmas meal by catering students from Brighton Aldridge Community Academy. The regulars who organise our Friday Friends Club had raised enough money so everyone got a couple of free drinks. One regular played piano and the BACA choir turned up at the end the afternoon for a sing-song.
On Saturday over 40 children came to our Christmas parties with games, food and of course an appearance by Father Christmas. In the evening our local vicar Father John encouraged everyone to sing Christmas carols.
Then there was the usual men and women’s darts matches, our regular quiz night and just having somewhere for people to come and have a drink or coffee and a meal and meet their neighbours.
We’ve still got a lot to do, but are pretty pleased with what we have achieved in our first year. And if you are looking for a New Years resolution remember the Bevy is your community pub, so why not make it your venue for your party or event, or to treat the family to one of our amazing Sunday lunches
