Allan Postgate gets his cheque from Ken Gardner

A Shenstone pub has handed over a £500 cheque after one of its customers won a national competition.

Birthday boy Allan Postgate and his wife Joy were booking a meal at La Maison restaurant at the Fox and Houndsto celebrate his 60th birthday. They decided to sign up as VIP Members and so their names automatically went into a national draw – and Allan won first prize.

The Bromsgrove pharmacist said:

“We were looking for somewhere central because many of my family are from this area and so we chose The Fox after reading some very good things about it. While we were booking online it asked if we wanted to become VIP members so we said yes.

“The next thing we knew is that we had won £500 – so it looks like I’ll be footing the bill for the entire meal now.”

The draw is part of a national scheme and is made every six weeks. Fox and Hounds landlord Ken Gardner said he was delighted that a customer from his pub had won the money.
