19th April 2022 – Tony Pringle: “Time Gentlemen Please” : The pubs of Newmarket over the ages.
Tony Pringle, assisted by Peter Norman, gave a presentation about the pubs, clubs and hotels of Newmarket over the ages. Intended to be live online from the Society website, the wi-fi was too slow, so the files were accessed from a memory stick.
A brief history of pubs in general followed by a look at many of the pubs the audience may have used, or certainly knew of, and several that no-one had any idea had existed (unfortunately neither do photographs exist of most of the latter. Tony pointed out that his Newmarketpubs.co.uk website no longer existed, it was now incorporated into this, the Society’s own website.
