LETTER: Revamp at historic hotel is the best yet
I'd just like to put forward a suggestion regarding the revamp of The Hay Hotel in Shirland.
The pub has a great history and has been recently restored to a superb village pub.
Shirland has a good history from being mentioned in the Domesday Book right through to the famous welfare brass band.
Being a local I have frequented the Hay for more than 30 years and seen a lot of changes. This being the best so far.
It would be rather nice to see the pub get a little recognition and let customers old and new see the passion that the village shares for social meetings etc. I hope on behalf of my fellow villagers and the hardworking staff, also the project developers that an article could be placed in the Derbyshire Times.
