Greene King flies Pride flag at Bury St Edmunds headquarters after launch of LGBT+ network
Pub company and brewer Greene King has shown its support for the LGBT+ community by flying a Pride flag at its Bury St Edmunds headquarters.
The rainbow flag at its Westgate Street head office replaces the company's traditional flag and will fly throughout June's Pride month.
The flag follows last month’s launch of Greene King’s LGBT+ network, The Village Greene, at the City of Quebec pub, in London, which is thought to be the city’s oldest LGBT+ friendly pub.
More than 300 team members across the country have joined the network, with the support of eight committee members.
Pubs will also be taking part with the launch of 'Queen of Beers' - an ale in celebration of pride month and the launch of the Village Greene.
Scott Frankham, senior communications manager and Village Greene committee member, said: “We are extremely proud to see the rainbow flag flying high above our Bury St Edmunds brewery this June.
"It’s great to see the company show pride in its diverse workforce by supporting Pride month and also helping the network to launch the Queen of Beers ale to mark the celebration.”
