The Battle is hotting up!

The Battle is Hotting Up!

With just days to go before the Battle of the Brook is engaged, is able to reveal to readers, the extra events surrounding this ‘once in a decade‘ contest.

The White Lion

– the South side – are putting on a terrific Bar-B-Q from 2pm onwards and will have live music by the very successful band, The Irish Mark – the band who were so popular at the recent Gedd-Stock Festival.

Liz and James will welcome all comers, not just southerners, to their pub garden on Queen Street – and they’re open for lunches beforehand, so why not make a full day of it with the White Lion?

The White Hart

– the North side – are also providing live music, plus a disco dome for kids. There is a communal BBQ, but bring your own meat. Salads will be provided or, if you prefer, a picnic in their West Street garden.

Nicky and her staff and will also welcome all comers, not just northerners, to their premises on West Street. They always give their customers a warm welcome – expect to receive just such a welcome on this special day!

What about the teams?

Well, there has to be some mystery, anticipation and excitement in the build up to the day!

But whoever they  are, the team members will take their rightful place in the village’s history.
