Droitwich pub regulars to turn town red and white with 200 England flags ahead of the Sweden game

A GROUP of regulars from the Freemasons Arms pub in Droitwich have been turning the town red and white to celebrate England’s progress in the World Cup.

Jamie Gardner, Masan Hall, Ian Coombes, Liam Neath and Connor Harper put out almost 70 flags around the town before the last 16 match with Columbia on Tuesday.

And tomorrow night they will be out again with another 200 flags ahead of England’s quarter-final with Sweden at 3pm on Saturday.

There will also be 28 ping pong balls hidden in the Lido Park and Vines Park which youngsters can then exchange for a World Cup football at the pub.

Landlady Tracey Robinson said: “It’s fantastic – the lads want to bring everyone.

“Some of the flags were taken down by people and others took them after Tuesday’s match so they need to get more out there.

“If England win the lads will probably end up in the pool in the beer garden again like they did after we beat Columbia.”

The flags have been paid for by a GoFundMe page which has a target of £2,018. Cash left after the flags have been funded will go to St Richard’s Hospice.
