The Blessing of the Taps and Pumps at The Robin Hood pub
The Blessing of the Taps and Pumps at The Robin Hood pub took place this Nicholastide (Wednesday 4 December 2019).
Thanks to Kellie, Chris and all the team for their wonderful hospitality. Also to the talented group of musicians drawn from local bands (Phoenix Concert Band and Allegra Concert Band) for accompanying the carol singing.
Revd Frances Arnold (Priest-in-Charge at St Nicholas Church) conducted the annual examination of the Landlord with Kellie Parker and was then led round the pub to bless it. It was a privilege to celebrate St Nicholas, as protector of travellers, innkeepers and brewers, and to pray for God's blessing on the pub and the community that use it.
