'Pub Olympics' carries on Ridley darts tradition
Contemporaries of Amanda Howett will remember that along with the usual Ridley sport specialities of "Ridley Rules" croquet, the game of darts became popular as a social pastime in the community!
We were pleased to see that Amanda (now assistant curate at St Michael's, Boldmere) has been using her sporting skills to good effect in her parish.
The Winter 2012/13 issue of Wetherspoon's magazine reported on the joint venture between the Bishop Vesey pub and the nearby parish church of St Michael's.
Also featured in the article is the Bishop of Birmingham - and current Chair of Ridley Council - David Urquhart.
