The Balcony goes in!
By Geoff Hodgkinson, Co-Editor

October 1, 2010: Another historic piece of the new George jigsaw fell into place Thursday when the front bedroom balcony went up! Alan Toogood missed the lift by minutes, but managed to get this picture a short while later. Will the new George be open by Carnival? Well, we haven't had a response from Scottish & Newcastle to our earlier query so we don't know the official position. Unofficially, the town is rife with rumours. Apparently, the two persons who had showed keen interest have since walked away from the deal so there's no-one lined up to take over as far as we know. Are flats in the offing? people are wondering. Pub experts 'in the know' tell us that the financial deal involved is pretty onerous, which if true sounds unfortunate to say the least as getting this business back on track will need A LOT OF TLC at the beginning. Does that mean another manager will be employed - we hope not, given the history. More soon.
