Village pub near Grantham set to reopen before Christmas
A village pub which has been closed for two years is due to open over Christmas before a full reopening next year.
The Welby Arms at Denton held a trial opening at the weekend. Jon Bell said: "Our opening last weekend was in place to identify any issues that we need to address prior to a full opening. We are also planning to open over Christmas so that the village has a place to meet in the festive season - so plans are to open from December 20 to January 1. After that, we should have a good feel for when the full opening will happen."
Mr Bell described the trial opening as 'fantastic' with excellent support from the villagers who 'seemed to have sorely missed having a local'.
