A Derbyshire pub is inviting people to attend its charity quiz in aid of Ashgate Hospicecare.

Friday, 2nd July 2021, 2:45 pm

As reported on Thursday, the Plough Inn at Brackenfield was closed for just under a month after a man reportedly made threats to the landlord and other members of staff.

The 27-year-old suspect – who was arrested on suspicion of harassment, malicious communications and threats to damage property – has been released on police bail while enquiries continue.

As a result of recent events, the pub was unable to hold its quiz to aid the hospice for a number of weeks.

But the quiz will now take place at 8pm on Sundays, starting from this weekend.

It costs £2.50 per person, with proceeds going to the Chesterfield-based hospice, and features 40 questions. Complimentary supper will be served after the first 20 questions.

Winners get a Sunday lunch for four people at the Plough, along with a couple of bottles of wine.
