Go west young man! Or the Weardale summer trip

A party of CAMRA brewery liaison officers had a day out in Weardale and stopped off in Westgate for beer and lunch. This is what they had to say about their trip in the Durham Drinker issue 144 Autumn 2014.

"and then it was a short journey to the Hare and Hounds in Westgate . Not only did we have five beers brewed on the premises, to choose from, but possibly the best pie, peas,and chips I've eaten. Consequently , there were those among us who would have happily stayed there all day, and others, who shall remain nameless , who had two portions of pie."

Pet Day, a Westgate Associated Sea Angling, event.

It was Easter bank holiday Monday in Westgate, high up the hill in Swinhopeburn. Westgate Associated Sea Angling Club (WASAC) celebrate a new event in their calendar. Pet Day, when members and friends and family get together for a barbecue and drinks. The food was of the highest quality and plentiful, salads, curries and over the fire, the star of the show was the catch of the day.
Music was provided by Westgate's  very own ukulele strummers, or as I call them the "The Mild Rovers" thank you to every body who provided the excellent food, entertainment and a special thanks to Jonathan and Kay for the venue and inspiration and to the Hare and Hounds at Westgate for the beer.

A good year

As 2013 comes to an end it's an opportunity to look back on the last year and look forward to the next.

Westgate clock appeal, Movember, and the Graham Pears Memorial Pool tournament raised an a huge amount of money.

During the last months of the year the whole village did a remarkable job raising funds for the Westgate Memorial Clock appeal and local charities.  For the repair of the clock £14966.27 was raised with a target amount of £15664.80 leaving a shortfall of £698.53. The Parish Council has agreed to cover. By the end of February 2014 the clock will be repaired and reinstalled in the centre of our village.
Westgate Village Hall Management  Committee would like to thank everybody who was involved in the fundraising for this appeal. 

Movember and the Graham Pears Pool tournament  were  Hare and Hounds  activities. Both events were organised by Carlos Graham and once again he managed to motivate people to have fun and raise much needed money for the Movember charity, raising awareness of men's health. This year the Hare and Hounds Mo Bros and Mo sisters raised a record amount of £825.00 by a combination of growing moustaches, making sculpture and remaining silent.

The Graham Pears Pool Tournament was ever was a great success. This year it was won again by Daz Fletcher, his second win. One this occasion the final was contested by Daz and Jammie Emerson. The total raised was £336 which will be shared by local charities.
