Thurrock Council not to take any action into Golliwogs at White Hart Pub in Grays

Golliwogs 2

NO action is set to be taken by Thurrock Council in light of the complaint about Golliwogs decorating the bar at the White Hart pub in Grays.

The council received a complaint in February regarding the items at the award-winning pub.

But after six weeks, it seems that the matter has been resolved

A council spokesperson said:

“Following the investigation, this issue is not a matter for the council under the Licensing Act 2003 or Public Order legislation.”

Landlord Chris Ryley has welcomed the news. He said: “I would like to thank the council for their time and the eventual realisation that we do not mean anything racial.

“I would also like to thank people, both locally, nationally and abroad, who contacted us and gave their support.”

YT understands that the golliwogs are still there at the bar and have been joined by others sent in by customers and well-wishers.
