Village pubs and the community

Another old village pub goes and ends that community feeling

The Lamb and Flag pub at Bryncoch closed earlier this year after being acquired by the Co-operative Group for a convenience food store.

Work is currently in progess to convert the pub to a retail store and it may be ready by Christmas.

It ends an era when family, friends and neighbours enjoyed a drink and a meal.

Pubs like the Lamb and Flag are closing all over the country and villages like Bryncoch are losing that community spirit.   It is a sad state of affairs for those who enjoy the company of others.

Comment....

It appears the the Bryncoch Supermarket in Furzeland Drive is not happy about having a similar shop close by - but no doubt they will keep their loyal customers.
