Beer fes­ti­val cel­e­brates saint

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

PEO­PLE in Bea­cons­field will be able to cel­e­brate St Ge­orge’s Day in style this week­end when a beer fes­ti­val takes place.

Mayor of Bea­cons­field John Read has or­gan­ised the event, which will take place at Bea­cons­field Rugby Club on Satur­day.

The fun will start at 11am and will then run into the evening, with ac­tiv­i­ties set to in­clude a tug of war, a rugby match, a fete, live mu­sic from lo­cal bands and a range of real ales, craft beer, lager and ciders.

There will be a shut­tle bus ser­vice which will run all day from the venue to Bea­cons­field sta­tion, so that peo­ple can en­joy the range of drinks on of­fer.

Mr Read said: “It’s not all about the beer.

“The event is be­ing or­gan­ised to pro­mote and raise funds for this year’s Mayor’s Ap­peal, which aims to im­prove de­men­tia care and raise men­tal health aware­ness in Bea­cons­field and the sur­round­ing area.”

The money raised is be­ing ring-fenced to pro­vide an ad­mi­ral nurse for Bea­cons­field, Amer­sham and the sur­round­ing area.

Mr Read said: “Cur­rently Bea­cons­field, in fact all of Buck­ing­hamshire, is like the hole in a donut with no ad­mi­ral nurse or nurs­ing team, un­like sur­round­ing ar­eas, and we want to change that.”

Vis­i­tors will also get the chance to watch Bea­cons­field Rugby Club’s sec­ond XV play Tadley in the fi­nal home match of the sea­son.

A state­ment from the club said: “This is a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to show­case our club and its fa­cil­i­ties to the good peo­ple of Bea­cons­field and the sur­round­ing area and al­low many more peo­ple than usual to see our su­perb club­house and see what BRFC is all about.”
