Record ef­fort on saint’s day

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Facing The Bulldozer -

By Ge­orge – that’s a great idea. An Ash­ford pub has joined forces with 23 oth­ers across the UK to try to set a new record on St Ge­orge’s Day.

The Pheas­ant in Trin­ity Road, is part of the Gen­er­ous Ge­orge fam­ily of pubs, and over the cel­e­bra­tion week­end of April 23, the chain plans to set a record for the largest gath­er­ing of peo­ple named Ge­orge across its sites.

The pub is call­ing on Ge­orges, Ge­or­gies, Ge­orginas, Ge­or­gias, and even Mr and Mrs Ge­orges, to at­tend a fam­ily fun day.

Man­ager Trevor Fox said: “Last year, 13 Gen­er­ous Ge­orge pubs joined to­gether to bring 172 dif­fer­ent Ge­orges to­gether to mark the day. We didn’t open un­til Novem­ber, and we’re re­ally ex­cited to be able to take part in this year’s bid. Each adult Ge­orge show­ing proof of their name that day will get a pint, glass of wine or soft drink of their choice, while young Ge­orges will get a free ice cream.”
