LOCAL COUPLE REVIVE THE HERON A Peterborough couple who wanted to see their local survive have taken it on themselves! Meri and Rob Hyde are now hoping to get The Heron at Stanground back to its former glory and have invested in sprucing up the place. They’ve recently opened after having extensive works done but have done much of it themselves along with valuable help from friends, family and the local community demonstrating their dedication to the pub’s survival. Meri told ESP – “What started as an idea in a pub, wondering what was going to happen to our local when it got shut down, has morphed into the most important project I think I’ve ever undertaken! We are passionate about saving our local pub and making it a local’s local, where everyone is welcome. “Myself and my husband are both advocates for Real Ale and are CAMRA members, and as such, we have introduced a range of local ales to the pub from such brewers as Tydd Steam, Castor Ales, Digfield, Oakham and Star Brewing Company to name a few!” They have both Sky Sports and BT Sport available and will also be showing ALL the World Cup games. They have a huge, enclosed beer garden where dogs are welcome, and children are welcome from 12 – 7pm daily as long as they’re properly supervised. There is also a competition ready pool table. So head on over to The Heron and give them some support!
