red lion grand re-opening.

30 July 2012

for those of you who might not know, my mum owns a pub. a few months ago it was flooded.
flooded really badly.

since then she has had a fab team of workers strip it all out and re-fit everything. she has worked so incredibly hard through out the whole process and i am so very proud of her.

friday night i arrived in essex after work to help with the final big push. from the second i arrived it was all go. never worked so hard in my life.

















sorry mum, had to put this one up there...it was a priceless moment!!!




here are some pictures of the finished pub - how gorgeous does it look???!!

































it was a fantastic evening and i am so proud of my mum.
and now for a few thank you's.
thank you to the building team/electricians/painters/plumbers/landscapers who helped my mum to make this happen, thank you to the other girls on the bar team who made me giggle all night, thank you to all the lovely people who came down to support the pub and a massive thank you to my gorgeous friend sarah and her mum who made it down to say hello - so sorry i couldn't spend more time with you :(

as i don't want to put a downer on the amazing re-opening i will save my rant about the total ass holes (excuse my language - but they really are) who started a fight at the end of the night for another time.

p.s sorry about the picture overload..

  1. The place looks great! It's always been a far off life goal of mine to someday own a pub. It looks like it's a lot of hard work though!
