Ash­ford roof­ing com­pany Re­gal Rooflines trav­elled 40 miles to give a woman free help af­ter notic­ing on so­cial me­dia that she had been duped by cow­boy builders.

Re­gal Rooflines helped the woman in Sid­cup af­ter they came across a post not­ing she had been left with a half-fin­ished roof.

Com­pany owner Danny Hodges went along to as­sess the dam­age and fixed it free of charge. He said: “She burst into tears. It’s good to help some­one.” Could a new life be call­ing, as a re­cently closed sea­side pub goes un­der the ham­mer at auc­tion?

The Royal Mail pub in the vil­lage of Lydd closed ear­lier this month.

The large build­ing on Park Street has two bars, four let­ting rooms plus res­i­den­tial ac­com­mo­da­tion above.

Kevin Gil­bert, auc­tion­eer, said: “This is a large build­ing and could have a va­ri­ety of com­mer­cial uses. For ex­am­ple it might be used as a ho­tel, restau­rant or bed and break­fast premises. And if per­mis­sion is ob­tain­able it might be re­de­vel­oped for res­i­den­tial ac­com­mo­da­tion.

“Ei­ther way it is an­tic­i­pated that there will be great in­ter­est.”

The free­hold guide price fis £180,000 to £200,000. This sale is on Tues­day, May 2 at the Clive Em­son Con­fer­ence Cen­tre in Detling, be­gin­ning at 11am.

The pub is among 137 lots listed for sale.
