Keeping things in the family is all important to a pub manager who has run the same hostelry for the past 24 years.

Tim Naylor, manager of the Horse and Jockey, in Rawmarsh, took the reins of the community pub with his wife Gill, from his mum and dad who ran it for many years before him.

But he has not been idle since taking over and has installed big television screens throughout his Dale Road establishment and has customer-driven activities throughout the week.

These include poker nights on Tuesdays, quiz night on Thursdays, and a disco on Fridays and Saturdays and karaoke on Sundays.

There is also an active ladies darts’ team which last year raised £30,000 for charity.

Tim said: “This seems to be a popular pub. We have regular charity nights and we are proud of the money the ladies’ darts team has raised. We are always looking to cater for our customers.”
