Matchbox from the Pig and Whistle Pub

The Pig and Whistle was a pub on Station Road in Quorn. It is now a residential house (no 60 Station Road).

This matchbox was produced in the 1960s or 70s. It says:

"Sue and Terry - Your Hosts at....

‘Sue and Terry’ would probably be amazed if they knew that one of their matchboxes was now on our museum website!

The Pig & Whistle closed in August 1972. Sue Sharpe has told the museum that the last night was a 21st party for a girl from Loughborough called Bronia Starosta. The landlord at this time is thought to have been called Doherty.
