March pub’s name is restored after 24 years
A MARCH pub whose name was changed for 24 years has had its identity restored,
The Seven Stars, on Wimblington Road, was renamed The Stars in 1988, much to the dismay of pub regulars.
Tristan Casson-Rennie and his civil partner Scott Casson-Rennie took over the pub in May this year and made the decision to give the pub its old name.
Tristan Casson-Rennie, joint landlord of the pub, said: “Luckily the original sign was still displayed inside the pub.
“Moving the sign outside was the final piece of the jigsaw.”
