HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US – WE MADE IT!
On Friday 13th December 2019 (of all dates!) we opened the doors of the “new” Blue Bell in Cocking for the first time, so we’ve just reached our 1st Birthday!
What a year it has been! Who could have guessed, on that wonderful celebratory evening, that seems in the dim and distant past now, what lay ahead of us? The positive aspect is that we DID save the pub, and DID create the hub we all wished for, and it IS still open and trading on 13th December 2020! BUT, and it’s a big but, thanks to COVID, we have spent 147 days of our first year CLOSED!
Knocked, but not knocked out, we are looking forwards not back, and planning to celebrate our first birthday, and put the last year firmly behind us. So, in anticipation of better times, and to celebrate our survival, we are marking the occasion with a very special birthday cake prepared in our own kitchen.
We really want you to share this moment with us, so we will offer you a (FREE!) slice of our special cake with your tea or coffee (or any other non-alcoholic drink) any day between 13th and 20th December – all you have to do is come in and see us!
Steve and the Blue Bell Team (including Dave!)
