Pub News.

The new decade kicks off in style. Di will not let the side down.

On Saturday night the machine that dispenses the coke, lemonade,etc packed up. Di, our ever-so lovely soaker landlady contacted the brewery to come and fix it. The lady on the phone said it was the gas. Di said the gas was ok. The lady on the phone said it was the gas. Di lost it. Charlie the lovely barmaid rang them and spoke to a nice man who talked her through some procedures.

In the cellar there is a pump which deals with flooding. Next to the switch for that is a switch for the machine in question.

Which one had the soaker turned off?

The bilge pump of course! Now the "Merrie Monk" will go down with all hands in the next storm at sea!

But at least there will be coke and lemming-aid to drink. . .

Keep your hands off those switches.
