Celebrating 30 years of ROOSE Family Service

If you've been to The Junkyard in the last 30 years, there's a pretty red hot chance you've met Peter Roose. He's the current licensee of the venue, and we're about to see him complete 30 years of service in the position. 1989 - 2019. What a bloody achievement.

To celebrate, we're going to throw a bit of a fundraiser.

Many that have been into the pub over the past three weeks have probably noticed we replaced the old bar top with something a little fresher. What we're going to do is - cut up the previous bar top into small pieces and raffle it off to the good people of Maitland as memorabilia. Your chance to own a part of The Junkyard in your home! We'll put a plaque and a chain on it so its a display piece to hang in your pool room, above your bed or in the loo. All proceeds from this raffle go directly to a charity of Agnes & Peter's choice. We'll be presenting them with a special piece to keep, too.

Raffle will begin at 3pm for pieces of the bar top. Only 5 available.

We'll also have raffle tickets available for some in house prizes, again, all proceeds going to charity.

1st Prize: Free Pizza for a year.
2nd Prize: 3 schooner cards
3rd Prize: $100 Bistro Voucher.

Between 3pm - 4pm, we'll be running 1989 beer prices at $2 a schooner to help remember Peter's glory days.

Bands on in the beer garden, including Bill Chambers! See you here!
