Our very own Dan Dare!!

Our now famous caretaker at The George at Swaffham has hit the headlines after his previous life was chronicled in the local newspaper, the Eastern Daily Press.

For what started as a simple story about David Motton’s retirement became a most fascinating tale when he told us that for 30 years he was one of the leading comic strip authors of his generation.

For many years he had kept his previous life a secret and only a very few people with whom he worked knew that he was once a famous author.

You name a comic hero and chances are that David had probably written episodes.

He is best known for many episodes of Dan Dare, the most famous super hero of them all whose adventures were the main story in The Eagle, the biggest paper of them all, selling over a million a week.

The George in Swaffham will soon to be establishing the ‘ David Motton Corner’ in the bar where a selection of his work and  memorabilia will be on display.

If anyone wishes to arrange for David to talk to a fans’ group or arrange a guest appearence , he can be contacted through our marketing manager Julie Ashworth on julie@arlingtonhotelgroup.co.uk.
