A campaign to reinstate a pub in Knebworth gathered pace after nearly £2k was raised during a quiz night.

Residents have launched the Save Our Station Pub campaign in response to plans to replace the local boozer with nine flats.

North Herts District Council rejected an application in April, and campaigners have pledged to fight any subsequent appeals.

They have also arranged several fundraisers to potentially buy the site if it comes on the market, the latest of which was a quiz at Knebworth Village Hall.

Organiser Lisa Nash said: “It was a very noisy quiz night with 123 people making up teams that took in £1,800 in revenue.

“We have to take the costs out yet but it is wonderful to see so much support for us having a community pub.”

The next SOSP event is on Saturday, August 4, again at Knebworth Village Hall.
