A community pub is celebrating its 40th anniversary by holding a party.
Staff at St Nicholas pub in Stevenage are hosting the event today from 3pm.
Landlady Sharon Siggery took on the bar in Canterbury Way three years ago after more than a decade as a regular punter.
She said: “The opportunity came up for someone to take over running it and I just couldn’t turn it down.
“A lot of these community pubs have fallen to the wayside but this one just keeps going because the regulars are so loyal.
“It’s got a fantastic atmosphere and anyone is always welcome to come and join us. This weekend is going to be brilliant. I can’t wait for everyone to come down and celebrate.”
The event will feature music from North Herts-based band Rickshaw, well known in the area for their covers of classic rock hits by the likes of Queen and The Eagles.
