A police officer joined forces with a Knebworth pub to help provide tasty Christmas Day meals to NHS staff in Stevenage's Lister Hospital.
PC Paddy Phelan, from the Welwyn Hatfield Community Safety Unit, wanted to show his thanks to all those who have been working hard at Lister Hospital throughout the pandemic.
Teaming up with landlady Marian and her husband Nick from The Chequers Inn, they cooked more than a dozen roast dinners over the festive period.
PC Phelan then delivered these to the staff working in A&E and the children’s ward on Christmas Day.
PC Phelan said: “Those working in the NHS have been true heroes and I wanted to say a big thank you to all of them.
