Very sad news readers have passed on from the Queen Vic:
“Some of you may have heard that our friend Joe Schinosi passed away earlier this week. Joe helped us open The Vic back in 2011 and was our friend long before then. His death has hit us hard and we are still struggling to process it so we don’t have the words right now. Joe’s funeral will be held on Friday August 12th at 10.30am at Holy Trinity Catholic Church. Please consider donating to help his family with the costs.”
