A MASSIVE THANKYOU TO ALL OUR CUSTOMERS!!

Hello there all you lovely people!

Well what an amazing day it was for Oxspring, Penistone and all the other local villages and indeed Yorkshire on Sunday for The Tour de Yorkshire! The village and surrounding areas looked amazing and there was a fantastic community spirt which was evident down here @ The Waggon, Oxspring amongst the hundreds of people who came to visit us and view the cyclists go past.

From everyone here at team Waggon, Oxspring we would like to say a massive thank all of you to all who came and supported not just the event but us here @ The Waggon.  You were all truly fantastic and we hope you enjoyed the day and any food that you purchased.  The hog roast was extremely popular and was a sell out and to say that it served around 400 people that is definitely saying something. Many of you took advantage of our new patio seating area which I am sure is going to also prove extremely popular in the coming summer months.

So that’s all for now folks!! Except to say we look forward to seeing you again sometime on the near future!

RAFTERS CHARITY RACE NIGHT. A MASSIVE THANKYOU!!! OVER £1500 RAISED FOR THE TINY HEARTS APPEAL

A Charity Race Night in aid of The Tiny Hearts Appeal, Barnsley was held on Saturday 11th March in Rafters bar and was a sell out!

The Tiny Hearts Appeal @ Barnsley Hospital aims to raise £1 million to help fund a brand new special Baby Care unit at the hospital.

The new unit aims to provide an even better standard of care for all the special care babies and the most comfortable environment for all families and staff on the unit.

WOW!!! What a fantastic night was had by all. Lots of fun and hilarity whilst raising lots of money for the Tiny Hearts, Barnsley Appeal. A MASSIVE THANKYOU to all who contributed by either sponsoring a race, buying horse, buying a ticket for the event and/or betting on the actual evening.  Stuart of R N Promotions who came and provided the actual races said that he has done over 100 race nights and never before had he seen such an amount raised.  Especially the Auction race which in itself raised £455.

A BIG THANK YOU!

Well what a Day we had yesterday!  We had a stall at Penistone Show for The Waggon and Horses and what a fantastic Day was had by all!! It was lovely to see many of our existing customers who popped by to say hello and have a little drink and was also a pleasure to talk to people who have yet to visit us here at The Waggon. Many bookings were taken for our Christmas Events which can be viewed on our website and also many bookings for meals in The Waggon itself.  If you are planning on attending our Christmas events or simply planning on having your Christmas celebrations at the Waggon then I do urge you to book ASAP as we are getting bookings coming thick and fast now and I wouldn’t want you to miss out!! Indeed Christmas Day is already sold out.

Also at The Penistone Show we were selling The Heads Together Charity calendar  featuring 12 local lads who barred (nearly) all to raise money for this worth while cause set up by Claire Throssell in memory of her two boys; Jack and Paul.  The commeraderie between Claire, these men and their families is truly fantastic and I am sure that Jack and Paul will have been looking down and smiling at what an amazing woman their mum is and how the community has come together in their name.  It was a mixture of emotions for everyone but there was fun and humour aswell.  The calendar is available from the website and The Waggon and Horses along with other local businesses.
