There had been fears that the Hope and Anchor on Station Road, Welham Green had closed, with rumours circulating on social media that the last pint had been pulled at the Grade II listed North Mymms pub.

But Ei Group, who own the building, have confirmed that they are not looking to close the pub, but are working with the current tenant to ensure the 19th century inn continues to serve beer as it has for 180 years.
