A DRONFIELD pub has announced plans for a £240,000 facelift that will help create 15 new jobs.

The Chequers Fayre and Square pub, on Eckington Road, is closing its doors on January 15 during a refurbishment and will re-open on February 6.

It is asking people to nominate a community-minded and caring family to officially re-launch the pub on a fun-day on February 18 and be entered into the Fayre and Square Family of the Year contest.

Darren Lines, Chequers manager, said: “This is an opportunity to say thank you by treating a family to VIP treatment including a meal on us.”

Those interested in a job at The Chequers or nominating a Fayre and Square family can contact Darren on (01246) 412342.
