RUMOURS on social media that global superstar Robbie Williams was seen enjoying a pint in Polesworth Working Men’s Club at the weekend have caused some amusement in the village.
North Warwickshire Borough Council leader Mick Stanley said: “Well, I was in the club on Saturday night and I certainly didn’t see him. There was a 40th birthday going on in the big room and he wasn’t there – and I was in the lounge and he definitely wasn’t there either, so I have no idea how this rumour started.”
Gossip on Facebook and Twitter even suggested that the star had bought Pooley Hall, once home to soul legend Edwin Starr.
Mick said: “Robbie has a huge house in LA, so I’d be a little surprised if he moved to Polesworth, but it’s a very friendly place, he’d be made very welcome!”
