Pub’s pints will help RBL funds

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

A land­lord who served in the Army for four years is giv­ing back to the armed forces by rais­ing a pint.

The Knoxbridge, near Frit­ten­den, is the only pub in Kent which will be serv­ing a spe­cial edi­tion Royal Bri­tish Le­gion (RBL) beer, Hope and Glory, this Re­mem­brance week­end.

Pun­ters at the Cran­brook Road pub can en­joy a pint for £3.50, with 50p from each pint go­ing to the RBL. They need to be quick how­ever, as once the four bar­rels are gone, they’re gone.

Tony Jones, the pub’s land­lord who served for four years in the Royal Green Jack­ets, said: “We’ll be launch­ing the beer today (Thurs­day) and will have rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Royal Bri­tish Le­gion here, as well as mil­i­tary ve­hi­cles parked out­side. We hope peo­ple can join us to raise a glass.”

The launch will start noon, with the beer avail­able through­out the day.
