The Red Lion pub in Blewbury has been told it is going to the moon.

Pub landlords Matt Wardle and Kerry Tombs invested £200 in a project to send thousands of tiny, personalised craft to the stars.

The Pocket Spacecraft company has now confirmed that it has enough public and private funding, £290,000, to go ahead.

Mr Wardle said: “It looks like it is going ahead, which is rather nice.”
