A woman had her head shaved in a busy pub to raise money towards the refurbishment of the village hall where she serves on the committee.

Melanie Davies raised more than £140 from the stunt as part of a fundraising initiative to upgrade Somerby Memorial Hall, which is 40-years-old this year.

She is one of 40 individuals and groups in the village challenging themselves to raise a minimum of £40 each with various activities.

Her hair was shaved at the Stilton Cheese pub on Saturday evening

Melanie said: “Our village hall is 40 this year and, like many of us, is in need of a bit of a facelift.

“We are looking to raise funds to sort out the roof, repoint the back wall and redecorate.

“Various committee members are holding fundraising events throughout the summer and it was my bright idea to shave my head.”
