Lockdown Heroes - Norway Inn

Friday 1 October 2021

On Friday 1st October the sun shone on a small group of branch members as they ventured out to present a ‘Lockdown Hero’ certificate. The certificate was presented to Steven Hawke and his team at the Norway Inn, Perranarworthal, in recognition of the delivery service the pub provided during the national lockdowns. The delivery service which was instigated shortly before the first lockdown has now become an established sector of the pub’s business. Hot meals and beverages are delivered to local residents providing a much needed link between the pub and the community. The Norway Inn is also focusing on the local community by sponsoring a local football team. Branch members enjoyed Tribute, Proper Job and Hicks served in a convivial environment by friendly and attentive staff. After the presentation, the group made their way by footpath over the hill to the Royal Oak at Perranwell. En route we stopped to visit the 15th century St Piran’s Well. We admired the crystal clear water used for baptisms in St Piran’s Church further up the hill. A warm welcome greeted us at the Royal Oak. Tim and his team tempted us with four real ales from Penzance Brewery including Ale Conner and West Coast Pale. After a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon many of the group walked via the ‘Millennium Path’ up the hill to Perranwell station on the Truro to Falmouth branch line to catch the train home.
