Punters celebrate grand re-opening of The Royal Oak, Collingham
After two years of hard work, a village pub is now open again thanks to the dedication of its shareholders.
The Royal Oak, Collingham, had its grand re-opening on Wednesday, with a great turn-out of villagers coming to celebrate the return of their local hostelry.
Nearly 200 people from the village and the surrounding area become shareholders in a Community Benefit Scheme (CBS) to put the 250-year-old pub back on the map, and more than £200,000 was contributed by shareholders.
