Bishop lays down the challenge
Article date: 28 Jan 2013

Pub-goers in Sutton Coldfield enjoyed an evening of traditional pub games, to celebrate the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics.

A joint venture between The Bishop Vesey and nearby St Michael’s Church, Boldmere, the event proved to be a lot of fun, with customers playing darts, table skittles, shove ha’penny and bagatelle.

The Bishop of Birmingham, David Urquhart (left) took part in the event.

Rev Amanda Howett (second left), assistant Curate at St Michael’s, said: “St Michael’s has a long-standing link with The Bishop Vesey and this has been re-established over the last year or so.

“I play for the Vesey darts team or actually more often go along to support, as I’m not really good enough for the team!

“The ‘Pub Olympics’ was a chance for people to have a go at traditional pub games and see how well they could do.”

Duty manager Tim Rubery, pictured second right with team leader Nick Sammons, said: “The evening was a lot of fun and a great success. Everyone was keen to get involved with all of the activities.”
