Jim,
You are spot on. "The Queens Arms" has been transformed and is advertised as a holiday let. Details and pictures can be seen on the web. Vera said it was 800 to 1000 per week, depending on the time of year I suppose. Should the tenants wish they may have the use of their own private bar, the right hand one. At the beginning of the "lock-down" easing a local chef and his associate set up a "pop-up" diner in the car park at the rear, open on certain days of the week offering all day hot food and drinks. From what I could see on their opening notice they seemed to major in chicken dishes.

As regards the long term for the public house all bets are off and as you know the premises do not lend themselves to easy and safe access under the present health advice. I`m afraid the "old days" are past and not to be repeated. Let them be revered and looked upon fondly. Over the many, many years of helping to run "Elsies" from the outset I feel privileged to have been in the intimate presence of so much talent, knowledge, help and fellow feeling of the folk music world. For the above we thank each and every one of you who has blessed this venue. We feel we also found many friends.

I hope it is not long before you are all confidently playing and singing to your audiences again.

John
