Growing Up at the Local Pub
Many a baby shower has been held at the local pub. This means a child is welcomed into the pub's community even before they have been born. Once they are old enough to go out into the world, the family often gets together for a special meal at the pub on a regular basis. Pubs have reserved rooms for families to eat and enjoy themselves without disturbing the regular crowd. This way babies and small children can be accommodated for a meal or special occasion.
Growing up and being part of a local pub is a wonderful way to celebrate continuity in a community. When children come of age, they are welcomed to the common rooms. This is always a good day for the young adult, their family and the extended pub family. It provides a continuing place for the young adult to meet with friends and neighbors. It further signals another generation has come of age in the local community.
