THE Lions Club of Winslow enjoyed yet another successful Winslow Beer Festival last weekend.

Even though numbers were slightly down on last year, organiser Keith Hofgartner said it looks as though the town’s seventh annual beer festival has raised more than £7,000.

Mr Hofgartner said: “Yet again it was another successful festival with a mixture of live rugby that was well attended and live music that was well appreciated on the Saturday evening.

“Thanks to all our sponsors that made it all possible, and we’re all set to repeat it again next year, on March 15 and 16.”

Last week we pictured a team of dripping wet Winslow Lions planting 440 Jubilee trees at Winslow Cricket Ground on a soggy Sunday earlier this month.

The Lions will be planting a further 440 trees at the new cemetery site, off Furze Lane on Sunday, April 1.

And Mr Hofgartner said anyone who wants to volunteer for the planting will be welcome.

“The more the merrier,” he said. “Bring your own spade.”

More details will be posted on the Lions’ website at www.winslowlions.org.uk
