House of St George in support of England

ENGLAND might have crashed out of Euro 2012 in Poland and the Ukraine. But it wan’t through a lack of support from two households in Bulwell.

For as our photo shows, neighbours Marc and Darren Pollard put up between 50 and 60 flags of St George outside their homes on Courtleet Way, Crabtree Farm Estate.

In addition, Marc (39) has decorated the whole side of his house in the colours of the national flag.

The neighbours have even surpassed a spectacularly patriotic display they produced to back England in the World Cup two years ago.

Marc said he and Darren had responded to requests from other people of the estate to come up with something extra-special this time.

The pair had to put up scaffolding to get to the higher parts of their homes.
