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.

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.
