Beard of Spring poll splitting hairs: Closes midnight April 15th

Not on the poll: BLF organiser Keith Flett with the Spring style for the hirsute

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that the race for the coveted Beard of Spring 2017 title is splitting hairs with the vote closing at midnight on Saturday.

Contenders include teacher’s union leader Kevin Courtney, SDLP leader Colum Eastwood and Spurs star Harry Kane but others still have time to win.

The on-line poll is now open and the winner will be revealed on Easter Sunday.

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, there is a sense that Easter is about beards and the Beard of Spring underlines that this is the time of the hirsute, as new beards Spring beards sprout.
