PLUMPTON BROOK INN, Snow Hill / Lawson Street

PLUMPTON BROOK INN
or
SAWYERS' ARMS AND PLUMPTON BROOK INN
or
Variously as - 
10 Snow Hill
20 Snow Hill
21 Snow Hill
Lawson Street and Snow Hill
8 Lawson Street
*


Snow Hill and Lawson Street were adjacent, parallel streets off Walker Street.
Whilst it was only one public house, it had an entrance from both streets, and
I do wonder whether it was run as two spearate entities, with a different name
for each?
*
Whatever was the case, I will deal with both premises together here.

MAKE THE MOST OF IT!
Gird on your armour, honest men,
While noble duties call on he,
Though fortune smiles but now and then,
Her favours may yet fall on ye;

There yet are the sterling hearts around,
Who help but never boast of it;
If life must be with olive crown's,
We all must make the most of it.

What though your hopes have fled away,
Though you may find no trace of them -
New hopes with each recurring day
Appear, to take the place of them.

Let each and every day be spent, 
That proudly you may boast of it;
 Improve each talent to you lent,
And learn to make the most of it.

He who for social pleasure look -
Who daily are in quest of it,
Spend wisely at the 'PLUMPTON BROOK,'
There you will find the best of it.

There you will find unrivall'd Ale -
With truth indeed we boast of it, 
And think that man a Briton hale,
Who wisely drinks the most of it.

"THE PLUMPTON BROOK INN,"
21, SNOW HILL AND 8 LAWSON STREET,

CLUB FOR BOYS
NEW ORGANISATION FOR ST. WILFRID'S PARISH
The Rev. Father Wright, S.J., rector of St. WILFRID'S, Preston, in association with his Reverend colleagues in the mission, is developing an organisation which penetrates into the life and training of the boys and girls of the parish.
There has long been a successful men's club in Friargate, a County Catholic Club has been established on a very successful basis in Winckley Square, a girl's club has now been going for three or four years, and last night there was opened on the premises of the disused Plumpton Brook Inn, Snow Hill, a club for boys, to be worked under the direction of Father Wright, by the smart young officers of the St. Wilfrid's Boys Brigade.
Mr. Richard Westhead, the owner of the premises, has spent a considerable sum in adapting them to the purposes of the Boy's Club, and his generosity should prove a most useful service to the town.
Father Wright has invited to the club, which is now the new headquarters of the Boy's Brigade, other boys not of the brigade belonging to any of the school's connected with St. Wildrid's.
In the cellar there is a dining room brilliantly lighted with electric lamps, cooking ranges, and big boilers, etc., on the first floor is a spacious, well-rounded reading room and library, store room for carbines, etc., spacious gymnasium, which needs equipping, the lavatories, etc. On the second floor is the big billiard room, with two little billiard tables, ping-pong, and other games. There are offices and other rooms, and the club throughout is most conveniently arranged.
At the opening last night there were present the Rev. Father Wright, S.J., the Rev. Father Sir Thomas Heathcote, S.J., Rev. Father Ellison, the Chief Constable of Preston (Mr. Everett), Superintendent Harrison, Chief Inspector Winstanley, Mr. Firth (Barrister), Dr. Mooney, Dr. Ferguson, Mr. R. Westhead, Mr. Jas Seed, Mr. R. J. Peake, etc.
The Chief Constable expressed his gratification at the opening of a club in which disciplined lads would be taught self-respect and made to realise that each one has an aim and purpose in life, the aim to be as manly and lofty as possible.
The Boy's Brigade, in uniform, came on the quick march from their old headquarters in Lawson Street, first to the notes of the bugle, and then to the full band. The officers were T. Gardner, O.C., Adjutant W. Gardner, Captain's J. Bullen and Oxford, Lieutenants Livesey, Moxham, McCann, Waring, and Smith. Certain boys were detailed off for a fortnight at a time in charge of the club.
After the boys' dinner last evening, an entertainment was given, and Father Wright delivered a brief, practical address.
