The Three Tuns in Guilden Morden has officially been relaunched as a community pub, and the grand re-opening was attended by more than 500 people.

The pub's relaunch comes after a long fight by campaigners to get the pub reopened - and after more than 260 people bought shares in the venture and money was raised, it was finally made possible.
