Rugby Borough Council show support for England's Lionesses

Rugby Editorial 18th Aug, 2023   0

ENGLAND’S Lionesses have the support of Rugby Borough Council as they aim to win the  World Cup.

RBC has wished Serena Weigman’s team the team the best of luck as they prepare to take on Spain in Sydney on Sunday.

The St George’s flag will fly alongside the Union flag on the Town Hall this weekend, with borough council information screens also displaying support.

And while the cup final kicks off at 11am on Sunday, licensees are being offered a fast-track route to approval for extending their opening times on Sunday morning.

Licence holders will have until midnight on Saturday to apply for a Temporary Event Notice to allow them to serve alcohol from 10am on Sunday 20 August and, if they don’t hear from the council licensing team, they can assume their application has been approved.

RBC chief executive Mannie Ketley said: “We want to make it as easy as possible for our residents and businesses to show their support for the England football team. We are happy to fast-track applications from existing licence holders to extend their opening hours so that they can open early and get behind the squad.

“Reaching the World Cup Final has been an incredible achievement for the Lionesses. We will all be wishing the team the very best of luck as they look to go one step further and win the tournament on Sunday.”
