A pub regular who drank at a Fulwood pub for nearly 30 years is to be remembered.Advertisement
Ken Broadbent, who passed away earlier this year, is to see a plaque erected in his memory at the newly refurbished The Sherwood.
A two-week refurbishment has seen the pub given a major makeover by the Sizzling group pub chain.
Ken’s widow Beryl was the guest of honour for the reopening of the pub.
General manager Gemma Reeve said: “We’re so pleased at how great the Sherwood looks after it’s refurbishment, and we were so proud to have had Beryl reopen the pub for us in memory of Ken.
“Beryl and Ken have been coming to the Sherwood for nearly 30 years, visiting us every Sunday for their tea with both their children and grandchildren.
“Ken was a big character and well-loved within the community, and we wanted to honour him in a way he’d of liked. So we decided to invite Beryl to officially cut the ribbon after we reopened, so we could all remember her late husband together.
“The pub has been given a fantastic new look and a brand new menu, incorporating pub favourites from the UK and around the world. We can’t wait to have welcome back our regulars and the people of Preston to see what the new look Sherwood is all about.”
