Most of us will celebrate the Diamond Jubilee by having a lie-in, or having a cheeky Pimm's, or throwing another
peasant shrimp on the barbie.
Andrew Southerden, landlord of the Coach And Horses pub in Kibworth, however, has had quite a different idea. Mr Southerden has turned his pub into a ship.
"After the success of the street party we had for the royal wedding last year, we got to thinking how we could top that for the Jubilee," he says. "So when I heard about the pageant on the River Thames I thought 'well, why don't we have a Kibworth regatta?'"
Well, why not, indeed? May god bless her - and all who drink in her. Hic!
