Beer Festival 2015

Now the figures have been finalised, we are very happy to announce that the event raised £5000 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. We also have a  sum for local organisations.

The whole festival was a success with  over thirty barrels of beer, a large quantity of cider and one thousand sausages sold.

There was something for everybody, from locally sourced beers to tea and cakes on sale in aid of Marie Curie. Of course the star of the show was the Air Ambulance itself, which landed on the ‘rec just after four.

The pilot put on quite a show. Children, and some adults, were allowed to crawl all over the helicopter and many photo opportunities were taken especially by our own photographer Bill Faulding.

Over both nights there was excellent entertainment in Birches, which was free.

We are inviting local groups to apply for grants. Last year we gave the YAA £4000 and made various donations to local organisations.

We would like to thank our sponsors, listed below,  especially Simply Bathrooms who again were our main sponsors. If you would like to sponsor a barrel for next year, again please contact us through the Newsletter.

Finally, thanks to Black Sheep Brewery for their technical support, and of course, to all of you who came and enjoyed yourselves at the event.
