In addition, over the weekend, the pub will be hoping customers dig deep to help a charitable cause - a fundraising drive in aid of eight-year-old Rico Dunworth, from Peterborough Road, Farcet.

The plucky schoolboy is recovering after being struck down with meningitis - which saw him need a foot amputated - and is still poorly in hospital in Leicester .

A tombola and other fundraising activities will take place.
