George on the Green event marks owners' 10th anniversary

Will Taylor

A pub threw its doors open to the community and offered free drinks and fun activities on Sunday for its owners' 10th anniversary.

The George on the Green, in Holyport Street, has put on the event for eight years to thank its customers for their regular attendance.

Staff at the pub hired a rodeo bull, set up a bouncy castle, booked live entertainment and set up a barbecue, provided by head chef Sean Muggeridge.

The pub's landlord, Russell Stone, said hundreds of people attended.

He also sorted a space on the village green for various activities for adults and children, which had the permission of Bray Parish Council.

Russell worked in the restaurant business before he and his wife, Marilyn, and daughter, Natalie, bought the business 10 years ago.

Since then, they have grown a loyal customer base from people across the area.

Russell said: "It took a couple of years for this pub to take off.

"We are the hub of the community."
