CW82: Christmas in the pub

My wife, Pam, and I have been in North Yorkshire for around two years. It’s a challenge being priest-in-charge of nine churches; the joy has been the depth of welcome we have received not just from the churches but the community, and particularly the pubs! Two in particular have been outstanding in their welcome, grace and generosity towards us; I won’t name them, as there is a little bit of rivalry between them, and customers are loyal to the particular pub in their village!
