R.I.P Mum, Grandma, Yvonne 11.03.18
We sadly lost our mum yesterday after short term illness. No words can describe the loss we are all feeling but take this opportunity to write a blog in her memory.
Many of our customers who have had the pleasure to meet her will know she was a loving, friendly woman and was the strong fearless one in the family!
Yvonne loved coming to visit Mablethorpe with Tony (hubby) not only to see the grandkids, but to walk on the seafront, enjoy the beautiful sea and fresh air and of course to visit SBG and become a ‘local’ with the locals. In a short space of time she got to know many of you and in turn many of you have asked after her and sent your wishes throughout the last difficult 2-3 months. For that we Thankyou!
Mum loved the pub, she was so proud of what we have done, she loved a glass of wine, chilling with the family, spoiling the grandkids, chatting to the customers and her love of gardening; her little touch was to make the front look pretty; she planted the flowers at the front! We will endeavour to be as green fingered as she was to keep the flower beds in bloom and in memory of her! 🌸
The last visit Mum made to the pub was to watch Four in a Bed where we featured as the hosts for Beach Lodge Hotel evening dinner. Mum loved watching the show all week and was immensely proud to see this – we were so pleased she was strong enough to visit us and take those memories with her! She loved Cheryl’s “Goldfinger” sing a long and gave her a run for her money that night by doing her very own Tina Turner impression! She was always the life and party no matter what!
This Sunday (Mothers Day) was a challenge for all the staff as Yvonne was like family to all at Team SBG. When we got the news in the crucial lunchtime hour the team were in shock and caught off guard. They quickly reined it back in but we just want to apologise to anyone that did dine with us on 11.03.18 that experienced any delays or food not to our normal standard. It was a difficult 24 hours for all the family and we felt it was only right to honour the table bookings we had for Mother’s Day.
Mother’s Day from now on will always be a day for us to remember what a great mum and grandma she was and we will continue to make her proud.
Sleep tight mum love ya xxx 💕
