(Wendy Teale, George Washer, Bob Anstice and Robert Teale - we even have Carl, the Quiz Master, in some of these!).
The Wheel managed to raise the highest RNLI contribution in this area for a year - yet it had only been open for just over six months when it got this award.
The Wheel Alehouse is a proud sponsor of the RNLI - EVERY £2 quiz entry fee is given to the RNLI.
