“The Parson Woodforde closes its door at the close of business on Saturday 20thMay. This is a sad day give the amount of support the staff and owners at the Parson have been to Wensum Valley cycling since we moved to Weston Longville in 2015.
But there is some good news for WVC as the owners of the Parson Woodforde have given permission for the club to use the Pub on Thursdays and Sundays before and after rides. This is a very generous offer which we have accepted. There will be a difference to the post ride gathering as there won’t be a bar or kitchen service – we’ll have to sort our own drinks and food and clear up after ourselves including disposing of litter. We’ll have a key so will be able to get in and lock up at the end of the day. Timings will be tighter as well – the pub will open roughly 30 minutes before a ride and will be closed and locked up 60-90 minutes after a ride completes.
We will be monitoring the success of this use and discussing the longer term use of the pub as a base with the current owners and will report back.
