Enterprise Inns’ Golden Lion, in Magor, Monmouthshire, got into the VE Day 70th anniversary spirit, when it was transformed for the duration of the three-day celebration with bunting across the whole of its frontage.

Publican Louise Jones took advantage of the pub company’s recent tie-up with The Royal British Legion, which enabled publicans to purchase special VE Day flags and bunting from the Legion’s website.

Louise, who runs the village pub with partner Garth Davis, said: “Living and working in a small community, and being passionate about things like this, we wanted to make people here – especially young people – aware of the sacrifices that had been made on their behalf during World War Two.

“As well as the bunting outside, we decorated inside with more bunting, flags, balloons, and commemorative mugs. We’re right opposite the village cenotaph, and The Royal British Legion led the two-minute silence. It was about bringing the community together, and there was a really good turnout.” 

Enterprise regional manager Mike Haley said: “The pub looked amazing, and this is a great example of one of our publicans embracing a community event and making the most of the support we provided around the VE Day 70th​ anniversary.”
