By George

Today, as you may have noticed, is St George's Day. Or, if you drink at The Drill public house in Worcester Park, 'St Gorge's Day'.

Perhaps my heart should have been filled with patriotic pride at the site of the flag of Ing-er-lund fluttering from cars and houses around KT4. Instead, it all seemed a little naff.

Meanwhile, back in Central Road, the legend that is Ryan Gate (which has been for sale in through traditional and less traditional means for some 18 months) now appears to be under new management.

Quite which direction the new owners will take it in remains to be seen. Personally, I think the area is crying out for a Lebanese-style hair salon.

Watch this space.
