The Sun shines bright in Leintwardine

Our regular reader may remember the post from last year regarding The Sun pub at Leintwardine, Herefordshire. Back then the pub's future looked uncertain following the passing of Flossie Lane, the landlady of 74 years.

Okay, Berrocscir's Banner won't be winning any awards for breaking headlines, but your editor was delighted to receive the belated news that this gem of an English 'parlour pub' faces a secure future after villagers got together to run it as a going concern ( Hey, this is the Big Society, folks!)

If only all our boozers could boast authentic folk identities like The Sun. Best wishes to the new proprietors/licensees - please just avoid SkySports, Karaoke and Thai menus!

The BBC also ran the story and the pub's own site is here.
