Well Praise the Lord!

We’ve heard through the hop vine that Rev Mark Abrey and his parishioners, so bereft at losing the sanctuary of their village pub in Ascott-under-Wychwood, converted the Holy Trinity Church into the Trinity Arms – for one night.  Included as part of the service were “Confessions” and “Absolution” which they sourced through a local micro brewery.

Does that not just warm the cockles of your heart – but also show how invaluable our local pubs are.

What I loved about my first RambAle

Perhaps its just me, but until recently I still had a bit of an old fogie image of CAMRA folk, of all men with beards, socks in sandals and that sort of thing!  So on my first rambale I was fully expecting to be the only girl.  Not that that would have bothered me, the thought of a new (and guided) walk with a couple of good pubs thrown in is an ideal day out for me with my hubbie and our dog.  

But I wasn’t the only girl, in fact there was lots of other girlies and all of the same mind, a good walk with a few pit stops thrown in.  Of course there was a chappie with a beard but he was really cool and had us laughing all day.  Our walk was exactly what it said on the tin – a very nice ramble, at your own pace but with some cracking pubs at the beginning, loads in the middle and a couple just for good measure at the end.  A fab day out – can’t wait for the next one……….
