A Thwaites pub, and the oldest in Bury, The Two Tubs started its community support with Military Mondays, a weekly get-together for veterans and serving soldiers in support of the armed forces.

Everyone was given a free hot meal and a shot of port, and the meetings provided much needed support.

Since then, the pub has started monthly "Coffee and Conversation" mornings to help bring about positive change to the local community whilst raising money for local charities through selling sweet treats.

Other recent projects include ‘£1 OnePots’ where the pub serves ‘one-pot’ meals for just £1 from Wednesday-Sunday to help those struggling with the cost-of-living crisis.
