Drinkers and staff across Castle Rock's Nottingham pubs have been shorn and shaved for Movember to try to raise £3,000 for the men's health charities. And as the month came to an end, totals were well above last year's £2,000.

These staff at the Willowbrook pub in Gedling were typical: three in a formerly moustachioed team were willing to suffer a rib-taking and the loss of their upper lip hair. Manager Pete Hopwell says he is happy; “Some of us almost managed a full recovery.”

Meanwhile, it’s hair today; gone tomorrow at the Bread and Bitter on Mapperley Top where their Mo Bros chose to lose their Movember miracles in a mass shave-off on the night of the pub’s seventh birthday celebrations.   Drinkers and diners joined to enjoy a double loyalty card promotion, live music …. and the odour of after shave.
