A Magical Christmas Eve

We had a wonderful Christmas Eve in The Snug with Santa making a surprise appearance. Being off to the store for cider when Santa arrived I missed all the fun!

But Santa wasn't just there to give all our customers their Snug Christmas pressies, he also had a very special Christmas duty to discharge. He called forward a lovely couple, Andrew and Carol, and presented Andrew with a small box. The next thing Andrew is down on one knee, proposing to Carol and taking an engagement ring from the box. Thankfully, to loud applause, Carol said yes.

What a moment that must have been. Trust me to be off getting cider!

What a wonderful thing to take place on Christmas Eve, we thank them both but Andrew especially for honouring us with such a romantic gesture in The Snug. We wish them, and all our customers a wonderful Christmas and many years of happiness.

The Snug Outing

Here are some pictorial memories of yesterday's jolly to Manchester. Apologies if anybody was left behind but I'm pretty sure we left with 62 and returned with 62.
