Pubs and restaurants dotted all over Northamptonshire welcomed back customers this week following the easing of restrictions that allowed for outdoor hospitality to re-open.
Staff have worked tirelessly over the past few weeks to refurbish these gardens and now - as pubs continue to make a comeback this week - local pub-goers can enjoy the fruits of their labour.

2. The Wooden Walls of Old England - Collingtree
The Wooden Walls of Old England pub in High Street, Collingtree, just off the A45, was taken over by Amy and Martyn Thurley just two weeks ago. They worked tirelessly to make sure the outside space at the pub is ready for the official reopening launch this weekend, by relaying turf, dressing the barn and improving the outdoor seating area.
