APPLETON Thorn Village Hall has picked up another award from CAMRA - the Campaign for Real Ale - to add to its already impressive collection.
The former village school building, which became the village hall in 1980, has won the CAMRA North Cheshire branch "Club of the year" award.
It's the fifth time the venue has won the award and it has also won the Regional award on four occasions since 2006, as well as winning the North Cheshire Cider and Perry "Pub of the Year" award in 2009 and 2010 and the Regional Cider and Perry "Pub of the Year" award in 2010.
But its main achievements were to be joint winner of the CAMRA National "Club of the Year" in 2008 and to be a finalist in the same competition in 2010.
The hall operates as a pub on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings and from 1pm to 10.30pm on Sundays.
But it is also used as a pre-school and by various local groups including a dancing school, Guides, Rainbows, Mums and Tots group and Over 50s.
