Fabulous Festival Fundraising Total
Thank you to everyone who came along to our annual Beer & Music Festival, we hope you enjoyed it. The fundraising total for the weekend was a fabulous £940! This will be equally divided between Cancer Research UK and Parkinson's UK. We have to say a huge thank you to the following for donating the fabulous raffle prizes: Gary the Pilot, Gardenscape, Huntley's of Tenterden, Chapel Down Winery, Ellis of Richmond, the Bodiam Boating Station, The Walled Nursery, Lathe Barn Children's Farm and David Driver. Adding to the total were very generous donations by Maws for Fine Foods and Steph of Medway Party Faces, thank you. We donated 10p from every pint sold from the outside real ale bar too. All in all a fantastic weekend and a wonderful amount raised for our festival charities. Here's to next year!
Get 'Hot and Rothered' at the Festival!
Congratulations to Rob KIngsnorth, winner of this year's Name the Festival Beer Competition. Brewed by The Rother Valley Brewing Company especially for our festival, Hot and Rothered (4.1%) is a cheeky little Golden number that we're sure will go down very well. Rob wins an exclusive T-Shirt and £20 in festival beer tokens. Thank you to everyone who entered and better luck next year!
