England Departs Holt Park

Now England are out of the World Cup, the cross of St George has come down across Holt Park.

As residents got behind the England team, Holt Park and the surrounding area became awash with red and white.

However, the World Cup spirit ended prematurely for England fans as their team crashed out to their life long foes, Germany, on Sunday.

With defeat came the removal of England paraphinalia from the local area, with only a hand full of flags remaining. However, it wasn’t just homes that no longer wished to fly the flag.

In what some may see as a bold move the Lawnswood Arms Pub, despite the World Cup not having officially finished, took down their World Cup flags.

The pub had a spectacular display in which every nation competing at the World Cup had their flag flying high.

However, the display has now come down. In fairness England are out so therefore, the World Cup is over.
