Loyalty Rewarded

A nice little story from the BBC Local News.

Fred Dell gets free beer for life in Fleetwood pub

A man from Lancashire has been offered free beer for life at the pub where he has been a regular for 76 years.

Fred Dell, 94, has been popping round to the Strawberry Gardens on Poulton Road in Fleetwood for a "swift half of mild", since he was 18.

Landlord Dave Shaw has now made Mr Dell, a retired gardener, a freeman of the pub, in recognition of his loyalty.
This bit made me smile, because it's so very Lancashire:

Remembering his first pint in 1936, Mr Dell said: "You could get half a mild, five Woodbines and a box of matches and a penny change for half a sixpence.

Just because I'm nominally polite, does not make me a pussy. Sundae Girl.
