The Very Best way to celebrate England’s Day……..

Ben Markie and his wife are the landlords of this excellent pub who have supported their local church, St. Peter’s in THORNTON, Leicestershire.  And on April 23rd Eric and Eunice Roberts gathered their band and encouraged locals to join in, including the Brownies, to have a go at ringing bells.  The wonderful event was watched by about fifty villagers who cheered them all on, waving flags and cheering for St. George.  They then all retired to the Bricklayers Arms, had a brilliant meal, sang traditional songs, and had a thoroughly good time.  And what is more, they are going to do this every year on St. George’s Day.
