What makes a pub a "community pub"? Well you may ask, and there may be more than one answer, but without doubt part of any answer must be what happens there. So, just for the record, here's a little list of the things that happened at The New Clarence (apart from drinking, eating and generally making merry...).
Things we did together...
Local history nights
Student music nights
Arts group meetings
Adult fans of LEGO nights
Charity meetings (Hull DGR raised £19,000 this year)
Charity race nights
War games day
Umpires Association meetings
Fishing club meetings
Mental health group meetings
Ukrainian refugee support meetings
Trades union meetings
Local political party meetings
Chess club meetings
Local residents meetings (re planning applications)
Smiel Moots (Tolkien Society meetings)
Samaritans Volunteer training event
Hopefully one day soon we'll be in a position to add to that little list...
