Wow — what a fantastic event! Very possibly the best Summerfest ever, with an estimated 4,000 visitors coming to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, the music, the wonderful food, the huge choice of real ales and ciders and, of course, the sunshine!
Our very sincere thanks to the organising committee, who do a superb job, and also to the large team of volunteers who help out before, during and after the event.
Everything went off without a hitch.
The only fly in the ointment was the intervention of police well after the beer festival had finished, when a late night reveller was challenged in the street for stealing an item from the grounds of Summerfest. The individual in question swore blind that he was innocent, until it was pointed out to him that he was wearing the stolen item — namely a bra from the Rennie Grove Hospice fund-raiser game!
