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.
