Round Table raises a glass (or two) for good causes

Members have a barrel of laughs at first ever real ale fest.

BARNSTAPLE Round Table Club members Darrell Gill, Simon Randall, chairman Solomon Singh and Mickey Jewell are pictured raising a glass at the club’s first ever real ale festival on Saturday.

The event at the Wrey Arms pub, in Sticklepath, Barnstaple, featured a dozen barrels of local ales and ciders from the Country Life, Clearwater, Forge and Barum breweries, and Winkleigh Cider Company.

Visitors came from as far afield as Crediton and Okehampton to sample the refreshing tipples on offer.

The club’s immediate past chairman, Simon Randall, said all proceeds from the event will go to local good causes.

He said: “For our first ever event, we made a profit so that was fantastic. It’s got the makings of a great event and hopefully we’ll be able to build on this for next year.

“As a club, we’re all about having a good time and raising money and this event ticked both those boxes.
