STUDENTS from Sir John Leman High School in Beccles have been tasked with creating a thriving pub, mirroring a real life success story at the Wissett Plough in Halesworth.

Nick and Debbie Sumner took over the pub two years ago and have since come up with a variety of ideas to make it the centre of village life.

As part of an enrichment day the pupils were asked to come up with ideas to include a community event, a name and logo and design the interior and exterior.

They also had to create a menu based on local produce and ways they could incorporate their technology status at Sir John Leman.

Students worked hard to get the tasks completed in two-and-a-half hours. They worked well as a team, divided up the tasks and came up with some really interesting ideas including a vegetable patch, a small animal petting area and a mini golf course.

During their residence Nick and Debbie have come with a village show, dry cleaning service, prescription collection service, fish and chip take away and a free buffet lunch on a Monday if customers buy a drink, using Sunday leftovers.

They have also come up with the Wissett Wonga - currency which they use to pay for goods and services provided by locals, which are then used back at the pub.
