Mike was always cheerful and approachab­le and led the branch with a steady hand in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Under the pseudonym “AL Guzzler”, he also wrote a roguish, sometimes irreverent, and always funny column in our branch magazine, Ale & Hearty. Our condolence­s go to his wife Alison and all his family and friends. Camra Southport & West Lancs regrets the announceme­nt that the New Fleetwood pub in Banks is to be demolished and replaced by a shop. This leaves the Ralph’s Wife bar as the only place in the village to go for a drink. The local Camra website is www.southport.camra.org. uk and you can find 37,000 real ale venues at: whatpub. com. writes Neville Grundy.

The remaining building is Grade II* listed. Now a garden bar has been opened in the grounds serving food and drinks, including real ale. The ales on offer are Liverpool Brewing Company 24 Carat Gold and Liverpool Pale Ale. The bar has been Covid-19 safety designed and approved. There are parasols over 30 six-seater tables, so even on a rainy day you can keep dry while you drink. ● ● ● ● Coffee Break SUDOKU KAKURO CIRCLEGRAM QUICK CROSSWORD There is one simple rule in Sudoku.
