Drop inn to church
A CHURCH named after the patron saint of brewers is opening a pop-up pub on Christmas Day after their village local closed.
St Boniface Church in Woodgreen, in the New Forest, Hants, is hosting the Room at the Inn, named after the Nativity story.
It will serve local beers, wines and soft drinks over the festive period.
Rev Nicky Davies said: “I like a drink myself so I miss the pub as somewhere to go for a tipple and chat.
“As our only pub is closed we really need a lovely social space where all the community can get together and celebrate.
“We really need a pub in the village.”
