The Weston Mummers

Boxing Day at The Packhorse

Boxing Day crowds at The Packhorse

A record crowd turned out to see The Weston Mummers return to The Packhorse in Southstoke after a absence of 5 years while the pub was shut.

The afternoon followed the format of previous years, starting with a selection of carols, then the mumming play in front of the pub. Following the play, there was a music and carols session inside the pub.

The collection made after the performance raised £225, which has been donated to Dorothy House. Our thanks to everyone who gave so generously.

The Packhorse is Re-Opening

The Southstoke community have now succeeded in buying The Packhorse. It is now undergoing sympathetic renovation before the planned opening in Spring 2017

In the meantime, the intention is to open it for special occasions, the first of which is planned is Boxing Day 2016 with mumming and a music session.
