A WOMBWELL pub has been shortlisted for a competition prize of a £5,000 transformation.

The Anglers’ Rest in Park Street run by Simone Foster-Jowett is close to success in the Glidden Trade ‘Paint and a Pint’ competition.

And there are second place prizes of £750 of paints and £150 worth of paints for three runners-up.

Simone and her customers had to state why the pub deserves a makeover in fewer than 30 words.

The Anglers’ is no stranger to awards. Earlier this year it received a plaque as the chosen Barnsley CAMRA Cider Pub of the Year.
