Pub landlord, Ian Blackmore, said: “At the Jolly Sailor, our crew and shipmates always have their fingers on the pulse of what is current, so with the Mannequin Challenge spreading, we thought it would be a lot of fun to do one at the pub with our many Christ Church sports teams. Everyone had a lot fun!”
