Last night at The Crown

Phil and Bev Shaw are leaving The Crown, Ollands Road, Reepham, after six years as landlords.
To see them off in style, Simon Wilkinson (No Frills) will play live throughout the evening of Saturday 8 October, offering a night of rock, punk and new wave, and a chance to celebrate their times at The Crown.
The Shaws last day (and night) as pub tenants will be on Sunday 9 October, when all loyal customers and friends old and new are invited to “come along and help drink the pub dry”.
