AFTER saying 'I do' a couple decided to take on a new challenge and take over a popular Weston pub.

The new faces behind the bar, Paul and Mandy Boundary, decided they wanted to go into the pub trade and began a training course and search for the perfect place after touching down from their honeymoon last year.

Paul, a former aeronautical engineer, aged 57, and 46-year-old Mandy are now running the Borough Arms in Locking Road, and plan to start serving food at the end of this month and have arranged a charity event.

Mandy, who was a receptionist and a carer for her mother and grandmother before she got involved in bar-keeping, said: “We got married in November and decided to do something completely different.

“We both said we would like to run a pub and as soon as we came back from honeymoon we decided to start looking and make the move from Cornwall.

“It’s a very rewarding and exciting job, making the locals happy.

“I think Weston is lovely and a very friendly town.”

The pub’s accommodation and kitchen have been revamped by the company which owns the Borough Arms, Star Pubs & Bars.

Mandy added: “We have put some hanging baskets up outside and we will be providing food at the end of August, which we will be doing ourselves.”

A charity night, in aid of Help For Heroes, will also be held on August 25 from noon, where visitors will be entertained by a swing band from 3-5pm and get the chance to enjoy the family fun day, a barbecue and have a go at a raffle.

To donate a raffle prize contact Paul on 07449 319011.
