    A Kent pub is reopening for business after villagers gave it a facelift in just one week to prevent its closure.


    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.
