Double honour for Club Steward
The Club has marked the tremendous ten-year contribution made by Club Steward Allan Knaggs with a surprise presentation of a Lifetime Membership. This follows a range of awards, including the Club Awards Cricket Club of the Year for 2013.
Then, just four days later, the club has now been informed that it has won the CAMRA Tyneside Club of the Year for the second year running! A plaque now on show in the Bar was presented a year ago – there will be now be a new presentation by CAMRA officials, to be arranged over the next month.
CAMRA has praised the commitment of the club in spreading the word about the joys of real ales. There are three on offer in the Pavilion Bar and the club also hosts a five-day Real Ale and Cider Festival. The 2014 Festival takes place in mid-October – there’ll be plenty to celebrate!
