    The Papermakers Arms, in Plaxtol, near Tonbridge, was put on the market last month because of dwindling profits and fewer customers, dismaying residents.
    Landlady June Edmondson said:
    More than 100 residents donated their time and money to refurbish the pub.
    They were encouraged to take action by resident Eileen Dickinson.
    She said:
    She added she decided to muster up as much support as possible, and 120 people came forward.
