Just 7 days left to vote for the Beard of Spring
The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that there are just 7 days left to vote for the Beard of Spring 2017. Golfer Sergio Garcia and footballer OIivier Giroud have completed the list today.
The on-line poll is now open and the winner will be revealed on Easter Saturday.
The campaigners say the Beard of Spring is not about beard style or length but about the impact the beard wearer has made in the public eye.
BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, Spring has sprung and facial hair is blossoming once again, but the question is whose beard has had the most positive public impact so far this year?
