All day Sunday opening – Began 20 years ago

How amazing, it’s only twenty years ago this year when pubs were first allowed to open all day on a Sunday. Prior to this they had to close at three and they could open again at seven, but on Sunday 6 August 1995 all that changed.

Brian Mason, past Chairman of the branch reminisces “I remember it well, because we tried to persuade a local  longstanding GBG landlord to open all day.However, he reluctantly said no, because that was the only day when he could sit down to a lunch with his family.”

This year, on Sunday 9 August, we will be holding a North Herts Social at the Plough in Datchworth.  Joint owner Andy Rawnsley is pleased to host the celebration social and those members who present a valid CAMRA membership card, will be offered their first drink at the price prevailing in 1995. In addition, there will be sandwiches and nibbles.
