As football fever rises, many in the town are entering into the spirit of the occasion, with shops, businesses, groups and individuals all showing their support for England in the World Cup, now underway in South Africa.

England fever hits Whitchurch

Shops are decorated, flags are flying and there are even two bollards painted in England colours – pop along Bell Street to see them.

Many of the town’s pubs are taking the opportunity to increase trade by showing the TV matches on Big Screen and introducing offers and events around the matches.

One of those leading the way is the White Hart, well known for its special value for money offers and the competition has given publicans Andy and Julie the opportunity for even more.

Win the TV Off the Wall

Having installed a 50″ TV to cover all the matches, they are offering the TV Off the Wall in a raffle with the winner to be drawn after the Final. Tickets are £5 but here is the special offer – buy a ticket 30 minutes before, during, or after, a match and they are just £3.00.

Meanwhile, the Football widows are not forgotten!

Football widows also have their own offers at the White Hart! During all England games the White Hart is giving a bottle of house red or white wine free of charge, for every 4 football widows eating main meals from the Off the Wall menu during England matches!!!!

No doubt as World Cup Fever takes hold, further events, offers and promotions will be appearing around the town.

Of course anyone wishing to have their offers and events listed here can do so, just contact the site:
