Effort: Fallen tree had blocked entry for pub's delivery
The husband of a Punch licensee in Glasgow braved gale force winds to make sure a beer delivery could make its way into the pub.

Jim Drennan, husband of Pollok Inn licensee, Margaret, spent three hours demolishing a broken tree to ensure the dray team could get the delivery in to the Punch Taverns owned pub.

The adverse weather conditions in Scotland had seen the tree blow down and block the pub’s car park, and Drennan acquired the help of two friends to allow the delivery lorry access.

“We had to act swiftly as the entrance for the lorry was blocked,” said Drenna. “Also, the delivery was crucial as it was after the Christmas holiday period and we had no beer left.”

Punch business relationship manager Campbell Dorward said: “These guys put themselves and their equipment on the line in rough conditions. It just shows what some people are prepared to do to make sure they receive their delivery.”
