Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

BIRTH­DAY boy Ge­orge Coles cel­e­brated his fifth birth­day in style, by meet­ing an Olympic cham­pion. Ge­orge was among ex­cited youngsters who met Bei­jing cycling gold medal­list Jamie Staff when he vis­ited Spring Grove School in Wye yes­ter­day (Wed­nes­day). Pupils lined the road and waved flags as Jamie ar­rived to open the re­fur­bished swim­ming pool. Jamie, who grew up in Ash­ford, was on a whistlestop tour of the bor­ough to show off his Olympic gold.
