Cross Roads charity and champion

Pool champion - Pool players were invited to take part in a knock-out competition at the Cross Roads Inn.

Games took place over a number of weeks until the competition eventually got down to the two finalists, David Allenson and Tom Bolan.

While Tom put up a valiant challenge, it was David who emerged the winner.

He was presented with the prize of an engraved pewter tankard by landlords Neil and Flo and all competitors were rewarded with a prize.

The newly formed pool team is continuing playing matches in their first season in the Short Ferry League on most Thursday evenings.

Members are David Ward, James Ward, Jack Ward, David Allenson, William Marriott, Robert Brooks and Cairen Clark, with William Marriott as the captain and the league team of six members is chosen week by week.

Charity night - Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance was the charity chosen to benefit from the Charity Casino Night hosted at the Cross Roads Inn by mine hosts Neil and Flo.

It was a very full house as people travelled from a wide area to give their support.

They also had the opportunity to win some of the many prizes donated by local businesses including Bateman’s Brewery, Stephenson’s Farms, The Grange Farm, David and Sally Ward of East Barkwith Post Office and Pilgrims Food Services, together with many other individual donations.

The evening was sponsored by Full House Casino Hire who provided the facilities free of charge for playing Black Jack and Roulette; food was available for the Hog Roast thanks to local butcher ‘Mr Whizz’ donating the use of the oven.

Proceeds from the evening amounted to £280.24.

Thanks go to all who supported the Charity Night and donated so generously.
