The Mayor of Driffield, Councillor Paul Rounding, and town crier Brian Fairfield are pictured with managers Tony and Donna Hill at the opening of The Benjamin Fawcett in the East Yorkshire town.

Also in attendance at the opening was the great-granddaughter of Benjamin Fawcett, after whom the pub is named.

Benjamin Fawcett was a 19-century engraver and pioneer woodblock colour printer, who lived in the town and became one of its leading employers.

The new-look pub, which features a beer garden, has been built on the site of the former Norseman pub.

Tony and Donna have worked for Wetherspoon for the past 18 years, most recently at The Three John Scotts, in nearby Hull, where they were managers for almost 10 years.
