Santa swaps his sleighfor a horse-drawn cart!
by David Simister

TARLETON residents were treated to a traditional sight when their village pub's fundraising campaign drew to a close this Christmas.

Staff and supporters of the Cock and Bottle concluded a campaign to collect as many toys as possible for needy children by handing them to Father Christmas, who arrived at the West Lancashire pub on a traditional horse-drawn cart provided by Thwaite's brewery.

It is one of several charity campaigns the pub, which was taken over a new team headed up by Lindsay Bowler earlier this year, has given its backing to, including raising funds for Queenscourt Hospice in Southport.

If you're interested in finding out more about the Cock and Bottle and its upcoming events call 01772 812518 or look up the pub's page on Facebook.
