A PUB boss is planning the world’s largest gathering of Nigels amid fears the name is dying out.
Nigel Smith, 56, acted after reading that no newborns were given the moniker last year.
He now wants the name to be celebrated and for Nigels across the country to stand up and be counted — and get a free drink in return.
Nigel said: “We felt we ought to have a gathering before it’s too late and we become extinct.
“Let’s face it, it’s not a popular name but surely there are enough of us to create our lasting mark.”

Nigel said non-Nigels are welcome but will have to wear badges saying they are not a Nigel.
He plans to try for a Guinness World Record with the meet-up, and hopes to stage a national gathering some time soon.
His event takes place at The Fleece in Bretforton, Worcs, on September 28.
