We’re looking forward to hosting the West Norfolk Village Games on Sunday where 11 teams will be representing 20 villages in the aim of being crowned winners in the small or medium category. The winners of this event will have the chance to join other district winners in the annual County final in Norwich. Junior and adult teams take part in badminton, table tennis, mini athletics, netball, squash, indoor bowls, 5-a-side football, darts, gymnasticators, mini soccer, archery, rounders and a fitness triathlon. The competition is always a fiercely fought contest and a fantastic event, spectators are encouraged to come along and cheer on their village. The event kicks off at 10am and should be completed around 4pm.

England may be out of the World Cup but we will continue to show the games on the giant screen in the Sports Bar. We have also introduced a new range of cider which comes complete with a Hog for cider-to -share.
