Yarbridge to the Rescue

When the Yarbridge Inn was forced to close due to the coronavirus outbreak the owners Becky Fox, brother Richard and mum Jane felt that they would like to do something for the community that had always supported the pub.
They started by using the surplus food left over from the closure to cook meals and, together with a team of volunteer drivers, they began delivering them to those in the area who had little or no support.
The surplus food quickly ran out, but help was at hand. Assistance in the form of food donations, drivers and chefs came from all quarters with a lot from the hospitality trade: Jenna and Paul from the Brunswick, Rob and Rachel from the Blacksmiths, Tom Axford from the Kyngs Well, Jay Chapman from Ye Old Village Inn have all contributed to this fantastic effort. To date, they have delivered over 4,000 "community drop" meals, and jolly tasty they look too!
