Popular Teesside pub prepares to open in new location

The Don Bar stood proud in Stockton for many years, a haven for war veterans offering support and a place to socialise.

Now named The Last Post Memorial Bar and located in Thornaby it is set to reopen next week. Bar owner Julie Cooper has made sure it has not lost any of its charm and much-loved memorabilia collection.

It may be a new home but Julie is determined to continue to support ex-service personnel who struggle to adjust to civilian life.
