Toppesfield villagers band together in to buy their pub

Help

People living in an Essex village have pooled more than £150,000 to help buy their pub.

The rest of the money for the Admiral Taverns pub, The Green Man, in Toppesfield, near Halstead, was raised by a mortgage and a "substantial donation" from a charity with links to the village.
