Drunk fined for pub disturbance
Tastes of Italy go on sale at food market
A TRADITIONAL Italian food market will be set up in Ashford town centre next Friday and Saturday.
About 20 stalls will be in the Lower High Street, selling a wide range of cheeses and cured meats.
There will also be a selection of the classic Torrone nougat from Cremona, a variety of biscuits, cakes and sweets, many types of olive oils and balsamic vinegars and a selection of olives.
Also on sale will be different shapes and sizes of pasta, speciality breads and a selection of fine Italian wines.
The event has been organised by the Ashford Town Centre Partnership. A DRUNK from Ashford who caused a disturbance in a pub has been fined.
Magistrates heard that police were called to Thomas Ingoldsby in Burgate, Canterbury, after complaints about the behaviour of 35-year-old Paul Briggs.
He was drunk, had been refused any more alcohol and was acting aggressively.
Prosecutor Teresa Ruiz said that while the police were speaking to Briggs, they were subjected to “all the usual foul and abusive language”.
Unemployed Briggs, of Beaver Road, Ashford, admitted being drunk and disorderly.
He was fined £60 plus £60 costs by Canterbury magistrates.
