Thanet Advertiser, Friday 16 November 1934.


We regret to record the death, which occurred in the early hours of Tuesday morning of Mr. Henry Robert Froud, licensee of the "Rising Sun" public-house in Effingham-street.

Mr. Frond had been in indifferent health for some time, but his passing will be regretted by the large circle of friends who knew him well.

An ex-Regimental Sergt.-Major of the Royal Garrison Artillery, Mr. Froud came to Ramsgate eleven years ago when he took the license of the "Royal Harbour," in Addington-street. He later moved to the "Rising Sun," which was shortly afterwards rebuilt and in which he remained up to the time of his death.

Mr. Froud was a keen worker on behalf of the trade, and was for three years president of the Isle of Thanet licensed Retailers' Protection Society. He also took a great interest in the work of the Benevolent Association and he bad been chairman of the local branch.

The sympathy of all who knew Mr. Froud will be extended to his widow and family of eight, of whom four sons are at present serving in the army.

Thanet Advertiser 15 December 1939.


A darts board subscribed for by Mr. Sid Jordan, proprietor of the
"Rising Sun," Effingham-street, Ramsgate, and his customers, is doing good work with the British Expeditionary Force in France.

Writing to acknowledge the receipt of the board, Cpl. William Tangnay says:- "It is a welcome change after playing on the French boards, which are about six inches across and are marked in circles, like a target.

"We have fixed up one of the battalion's boards in a cafe opposite our billets and can now enjoy the game with all the "trimmings," i.e.,. a bar to lean on!

"The villagers can’t work out how we play yet, but I’ll bet they are all darts fiends before long.

"With best wishes to you all, and may your Sun never set."


Thanet Times, Tuesday 24 June 1975.

Change the British pub' plea.

While members of the British Resorts' Association, called at the annual conference in Torquay for revised licensing laws to help tourism, Thanet publicans made it clear they did not want to see a change in the character of the British pub, which they believe was a unique institution.

President of Thanet's Licensed Victuallers Association, Mr. John Barlow, of the "Rising Sun," Ramsgate, said they would welcome more flexibility in opening hours.

He did not want to see the hours extended, but, in common with a majority of publicans, we welcome greater freedom to be able to open his house at the time seeing you his customers with welcome it.

A continental system of twenty-four hours a day opening was out of the question, he said, with high staff costs that would be involved.
"If we were allowed to open the hours the customers wanted, it would be more acceptable to us and the customers," he said.

They were already open 9 1/2 hours a day with another 5 1/2 hours taken up with cellar work and paperwork.

"I don't want more hours, just greater flexibility," he stated.

Vice-president Mr. Gordon Coker, of the "Lord Byron," Margate, agreed he would like to see more flexible licensing hours, but added. "I would not like to see round-the-clock opening and tables outside with cups of coffee. It would ruin the atmosphere of the British pub.

"Overseas tourists come here and think our pubs are marvellous. They have nothing like it themselves," he stated.

At the British Resorts' Association annual summer meeting, Mr. Tony Boswell, chairman of Eastbourne tourism and Leisure Services committee, said. "As new Europeans we ought to have reasonable European laws.

The Association's Vice-Chairman, Cllr. Rayman Jacobs, of Blackpool, claimed that continental licensing laws were more socially acceptable.

"We seem to have the old-fashioned idea that alcohol is a demon to be locked away at certain hours," he said.
