After months of being closed, the Vine at Hannington was re-opened. New landlady Katie Hughes invited the locals in for a glass of Bucks Fizz, and the pub was packed full.
"Hannington needs a good local pub, and the village will certainly support one. There have been a series of misfortunes recently, but I believe those are now at an end and the fortunes of the Vine are now on the up."
Sir George plans to revisit the pub once the electoral dust has settled and see if he has a role to play in ensuring its success.
