OWNERS of a village pub are inviting community groups to take advantage of a kind offer.

Ian and Linda Grant run the Houblon Inn in Oasby, and they plan to launch a weekday lunch club for support groups and voluntary organisations.

Ian said: “We can make what to us is just a trip down the pub into the highlight of the week for some.”

They also plan to supply transport.

Linda’s background in community work formed the basis for the initiative, as she sees how groups in the area will be affected by central government funding cuts. She said: “There are no longer trips out and that’s a fairly general picture for a lot of groups hit by the economic times we live in.”
