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.
