Another one goes the way of hundreds of others, soon we will have no good old fashioned pub's left.

That's one up on us the closest pub to us is the St Bernards Grange, that is over half a mile from us, but it's been bastardised anyway having a wacky warehouse I wouldn't go near it.

In my opinion pub's are part british history ,and everyone lost is a bit of history lost forever.

The next thing to go are Churches, some with centuries of rich history and architecture. It's one reason I go to our church apart from worship. If we don't use em we lose em. They all cost a lot of money to run. It's happened to our ship builders, car factories, pubs etc etc. Churches are great community centres as were pubs.

Our local pub, The Chestnut Tree. A one time M&B pub of the year, had a good Domino team, Darts team, and a massive Fishing Club. It also had a great OAP committee who gave our local old people day's out and meals and shows in the summer and at Christmas. in other words a really good community centre.

Pub's were the heart of the community ,but they are dissapearing fast ,and there's nothing to take there place.
