Fantastic news from our Gromit-o-Meter once again, we’re now past the £4,000 mark. Each week surpasses the last and Gromit’s dish generated a massive £563.30p over the past week. Many thanks to all who have contributed.
The haul included a record Bank Holiday Monday for us and the proceeds from our ‘Gromit Hash’ (please see blog on that). Our last big push is this Sunday 8th September with ‘Along the Edge with Gromit’, it’ll be great if you can make it. Harmony will be “Gromit of the day”, especially for the occasion.
The piccie shows landlord Mark with pal Pam giving Gromit a well-deserved drink from his donation dish.
War hero Gordon Prime is seen here with our Gromit Harmony yesterday (28th August) on his annual pilgrimage to Hawkesbury.
Gordon is a Normandy veteran from Tenby branch of the British Legion and has been a visitor to the Beaufort for nearly our entire 19 years here. He lost a valuable friend and comrade from Hawkesbury, despatch rider Burt Stinchcombe, right at the end of the war and has never forgotten him.
He was here with friends and colleagues from Wales and they all loved our Gromit – a pleasant surprise to them all. If it wasn’t for the likes of Gordon and his pals, we probably wouldn’t be enjoying our summer so much with the Unleashed Trail. The Beaufort is Hawkesbury’s Legion HQ.
We shall remember them…
This has been a record week for Harmony Gromit’s dish with £373.80p therein, including £12 from Carol Fowler’s Gromit duvet. On top of this we had a massive £500 from one of our lunchtime regulars making a running total of £3506.45p.
Many thanks once again to all who have contributed and a special thanks to Les Trinder for repairing Gromit’s plinth (which has had a hammering with all of the thousands of visitors we’ve had).
Mike and Sophia Truebody in all their wedding finery – complete with bridesmaids, maid of honour and Harmony Gromit!
Best wishes for the future from all at the Beaufort.
Why not plan your family reunion at the Beaufort? Here are the Cox cousins not only enjoying our skittle alley and food, but also our Gromit.
I don’t know what Parish Councillor Mike is doing with Gromit’s dish, but luckily there wasn’t anything to clear up after!
The Beaufort Arms doubles as watering hole for CBRE Charity Bike Ride, Matthew Prior and his team amass over £2000 for their good cause and are seen here enjoying our Gromit. Job well done.
