The action group was founded by villagers when a buyer came forward to turn The Cabinet pub, which has been closed since 2011, into a house.

Group member Edwin Kilby said: “It’s our first pop-up pub event, we wanted to thank the community for the support we’ve had.

“We’re planning to replicate a village pub so they’ll be real ale and other drinks and food from Julian Clarks of Ware. There will be classic pub games like shove ha’penny and pub skittles. There will also be live music from acoustic band Sky West.

“We don’t know how it’s going to go, as it’s our first one, but if we get 100 people drop in we’ll be doing alright.”
