Northants woman: England's biggest fan?!

Sharon Miller's been flying the flag for years but has taken it to new heights for World Cup 2010 with a full England zone for the family and their neighbours to watch the games.

She's spent the last four weeks turning her modest home into a mecca for football fans.  The front and back of the house are kitted out with no less than a thousand flags, some of which date back several years.  There's a full-on England zone in the back garden which Sharon describes as a "tent."  It's more like a tent city with a covered and lit walkway, a sofa and chairs infront of the centrepiece garden shed which has been transformed into a TV platform for the all-important games.

Whilst it may seem a bit over the top for some people's tastes, Sharon sez they're expecting around 60 people to turn up to watch the England matches and stresses that it is for a good cause: "Wwhen people come round to watch the game in the tent we ask them to make a donation for charity.  We're hoping to raise around £500 for Great Ormond Street Hospital which we've chosen because I lost a good friend, Louise Webster, at the beginning of the year ."
