Mousetrap! The Lamb makes a lifesize version

with one comment


The Lamb Public House in Surbiton, Surrey defied the current trend in pub closures in a remarkable fashion.  They have long had a fascination with board games so they decided to build a real life version of the popular board game Mousetrap.

And here is the Youtube footage in full:

All was in aid of the Shooting Star Hospice for Children.  The Lamb drafted in staff, friends, regulars and volunteers to aid in this massive construction project.  This is great news in a year where pubs are closing at a rate of fifty a month.  It is also nice to see something of the community spirit coming back at last.

The Lamb

The Shooting Star Hospice provides care, support and advice for families of children with life threatening conditions.  These care services are offered free of charge to families across the western half of London and north Surrey.

They do an amazing pint of Ringwoods apparently.  Must go sample one, and have a play on the Mousetrap one day.
