“Juke Mojo” – Saturday 2nd March 2019 – live music
Whether it is the time of year, or whatever, the above event is CANCELLED owing to lack of interest
It is such a great pity as Juke Mojo are outstanding and, an act of such quality that is rarely seen in Pubs today
Our apologies to the Boys – hopefully later on in the year people will be up for it ?
What an Evening !
Upon the return of Sandie and Terry from their 198th holiday of the year, it was The Charity Finale – the outcome of the last 13 weeks Tuesday Quiz Nights at the Bolton Arms
As our Customers are near to raising £400,000 for local Good Causes and Charities over the last 10 years – could this result achieve that halcyon goal ?
Tension mounts. Lips are dry. Fingers are crossed. “Hail Mary’s” can be heard being murmurred in the background. People are being offered up for sacrifice (I myself offered up Ed and Matt from Diss) !
The end result was a magnificent £1,750 being raised for the local for Prostate Cancer Charity – absolutely brilliant !
Thank you to all who contributed and partook – the £400,000 is getting closer by the day
Congratulations to Emily Self (Head Chef) and Kitchen Staff
For the 11th year in row, Emily has retained our Status in the Hygiene “World” following a 24 months review by the local Environmental Health Officer
Being Awarded a “5 Stars – Very Good” is one of the highest levels of recognition available and, is not achieved in some of the Michelin Star restaurants in London
The Award basically recognises the way we manage our Food Products from Pre-Order to Receipt, the Management of such when received, the methods used throughout the cooking process and, finally, the way the finished product is served to our Customers
The Award also takes into account the cleanliness of our Restaurant, Bar and Toilet facilities
Our Apologies for the lack of News over the last 12 months
This would appear to have been down to either our Website Provider (highly unlikely) as the website has continued to operate perfectly during that time, or, it has been due to an oversight by our Website Administrator
Whatever it was down to has now been rectified and, we will continue to update the website with all the news on a regular basis
Isle of Wight & Hampshire Air Rescue Service
Through our Tuesday night Quiz we have just raised and presented a cheque to the above Charity for £ 1,500.00 – yes, £ 1,500 !
The cheque was collected by local Ryland Lee, who appeared taken aback at the fact that a wee country pub could raise such an amount of money over 13 x weeks from £1 Quiz Entry Fees
Since 2008 our Customers, Suppliers and Staff have helped us raise over £ 250,000 for LOCAL Good Causes and Charities
A massive THANK YOU to everybody who has been involved- BUT BE WARNED, we’re now looking towards the £ 500,000 objective !
Bolton Arms arrives in Sri Lanka…
The Bolton Arms is reaching new Markets every day owing to people such as The Bolton Wanderers !
I, personally, do not believe we will benefit from an immediate influx of Sri Lankans – but, if we do, i’ll update you on our next post !!!
It started with an email and turned into £11,527 + an extension ?…
…and the wee one has now undergone her surgery, which we wait to hear the outcome of from her parents
The £11,527 raised by our regulars on Emmy’s Evening at the Bolton Arms was outstanding, which was topped off with the offer by local tradesmen on the night pledging to build her much needed Treatment Room at home, We await the final outcome !
