Keen charity supporter Steam Coach landlord Justin Peacock will be doing his bit for a worthwhile cause when his Boxmoor pub plays host to a reunion of punters and staff from the long lost town centre Waggon and Horses watering hole.

The event, this Saturday from 7.30pm, will be raising funds for Parkinson’s UK while also getting old faces together.

It has been organised by former Waggon and Horses landlady Pamela Dunlop, who ran the town centre venue for eight years with late husband Brian.

Just like Justin, who regularly raises cash for cancer causes, the couple were keen charity supporters.

Justin said: “I think there is going to be a good turnout.

“There is an array of raffle prizes. We have got two very expensive perfumes - one for a man and one for a woman - which are each worth around £500 and known as the most expensive perfume in the world.”

Saturday night’s event at the pub in St John’s Road will be a chance to take a trip down memory lane with old pictures and memorabilia on display.

The Waggon and Horses closed its doors in 1989 to make way for town centre shopping improvements, which did not come to fruition until many years later.
