Locals raise a glass to celebrate Malcolm and Marion’s 25th anniversary at the White Lion pub in Cumbria.
Malcolm and Marion, licensees of The White Lion pub situated in Barrow-In-Furness, Cumbria, are today celebrating 25 years of running their favourite pub. The couple marked their memorable occasion with a spirited anniversary party which took place on Saturday. The traditional terrace pub was acquired by Robinsons Brewery on the 6th May 1992, and has been in the loving hands of Malcolm and Marion since then.
Malcolm, licensee of the White Lion, explained: “Me and my wife love serving for the local community, that’s why we have been at this wonderful pub for 25 years. We have formed many great relationships with our customers over the years, and can’t imagine working anywhere else. We are such a close-knit community, and it’s amazing to be a serving part of it.”
To make Malcolm and Marion’s event extra special, the marketing team at Robinsons Brewery designed a special anniversary pump clip for the pub to proudly parade on its bar.
Steve Robinson, Business Development Manager for Robinsons Brewery, said: “We always like to do something unique for our pubs, especially when they’re celebrating a special event or milestone. So, for the White Lion’s 25th anniversary, we thought it would be a great idea to design a personalised pump clip to mark the occasion. The pump clip itself is the same shape as the current pub signage, while the inclusion of the two white lions are a nod to the pub’s old pictorial. It captures the proud spirit of the pub and pays tribute to Malcolm and Marion for their many years of loyal service. Their hard work over the years has ensured their success and we wish them plenty more!”
Marion continued: “Robinsons have always been so helpful, that’s another reason why we have been at this pub for such a long time. They show a deep sense of care and always go out of their way for us, which is massively appreciated. Things have definitely changed in the trade since starting out 25 years ago, but one thing has always remained the same, and that is Robinsons’ quality of beer and their great support.”
The White Lion is located in the heart of the ship building community, which is what Barrow-In-Furness is well known for. The pub welcomes all, from the two-legged to the four-legged, and is open Monday-Sunday 1pm-12am.
