The Carpenters Arms, in Brook Street, is now run by Robert Barnes, Annabel Talbot and Leisa Sarll.

Just last year the pub was granted planning permission to be turned into a home.

But residents rallied around to show their support in a bid to keep it by trying to raise money to buy it.

On Saturday December 7 customers old and new joined the team to take part in the launch night.

There will be an increase in opening hours to continue to support the darts, pool, cribbage, card and dominoes teams.

Mr Barnes said: "I would like to deeply thank each and every customer who came to support us in our opening week; it meant a lot for the praise and encouragement shown to us.

"We would value recommendations from the customers, for which choices of beers, ales and other products they would like to see introduced in the New Year."
