Bristol Central Library Exhibition Comes To An End

Finally, after an amazing three months, our RLS exhibition at Bristol Central Library has come to an end.

Many thanks to all who came along to see it, especially those who made tremendously supportive comments.

Our particular thanks most go to the kind and helpful staff at the library who helped make it happen, our ECR partners in the Cevennes who put the RLS panel display together and generously lent it to us, and not forgetting PROPS, Barrie Hope and Rolls-Royce for allowing us to beg, borrow or steal their display boards to help it all come together.

Our final thanks must go to Butcombe Brewery for helping to sponsor not only the exhibition but our Treasure Island Trail as well.

January Fund Raiser for LJST

The Beaufort Arms in Hawkesbury Upton kindly organised a fund raiser for the LJST.

On Thursday 28th January a brewery visit by customers of the Beaufort to Cotswold Spring’s and Severn Vale’s magnificent new home at Tortworth raised £80 for the LJST (thanks mostly to the breweries’ generosity).

The picture shows the pub’s very own Bishop of Wigan, Stan Fillingham, getting a chair lift at the brewery with bearers Tony Harcourt and brewery owner Mark Francombe.

Many thanks to all who attended and contributed to the event, we had a terrific reception at CAMRA’s National Pub of the Year the Salutation at Ham afterwards, and once again Westward Travel ably provided the transport.

Beer expert Tom Salt provided the picture – thanks again.
