'Hoodie' hat ban on gran

Betty Willbraham was ordered to take off her rain hat in a pub — because it posed a security risk.

Betty, 82, was treated like a ‘hoodie’ yob and told to ditch her headgear if she wanted to be served.
Retired teacher Betty a member of the Women’s Institute for more than 40 years, had only popped in at lunchtime for a meal and half a pint of Guinness.

She said: “I’ve never heard of a hatless pub. How ridiculous!”
“It’s the first time I’ve ever been asked to remove it — and I’ve been in that pub several times before.”
“I’m of a generation who would always wear a hat for lunch.”

Licensee Tony Love said it was pub policy to ask people to remove their hats.
“We cannot be seen to discriminate between the youths and the elderly. The world is changing.”

The last time I went down the Cock and Feathers
the ONLY thing I was wearing was a hat.
