Posted under In the Community on July 30, 2014

EnglandI suppose you all thought blog posts about the World Cup had finished right?


Wrong!


Three Lions


On this day 48 years ago, England beat West Germany to win their first and only (so far – we can dream) World Cup. Although some of us may have been alive and kicking (pardon the pun) in 1966, unfortunately I wasn’t, and witnessing the England team’s performance in Brazil last month wasn’t the most inspiring to believe … Read more
