A much-loved local pub, demolished in 2015, was recreated at Hanbury Countryisde Show at Park Hall Farm to the delight of former punters.
Time was called on the the Red Lion at Bradley Green 7 years ago, causing sadness amongst the local community. Ian Few from Fews Marquees – who was a regular at the pub – managed to acquire the original bar and signage.
He came up with the idea of using his stand at the July show to recreate the atmosphere of the Red Lion for locals and to raise money for Molly Ollys which is Fews’ nominated charity.
£2,795 was raised through donations at the bar and the stand was very busy throughout the day and into the early hours.
Rachel, co-founder of Molly Ollys, said; “What a great way of raising funds for the charity. Fews has been a supporter of ours for a long time for which we are very grateful. It is lovely for the locals of the Red Lion to be able to step back into familiar surroundings for the day and enjoy a pint. The money raised from this event will help us to deliver at least 5 wishes for 5 extremely ill children. Thank you. “
