10th Wessex Beer and Cider Festival
The 10th Wessex Beer Festival at our brand new venue in Chilcompton was a great success with a fantastic selection of beers and ciders and some fine live bands on stage.details
This welcoming club of men and women was founded in 1995 and meets at a family run pub The Fromeway in Radstock every Tuesday night.
The 21 members, from a diverse range of backgrounds, currently include: an accountant, architect, car dealer, estate agent , engineers, IT professional, coin dealer, pharmacist, property developer and company directors. The majority of us work full-time, some have their own businesses and some are retired.
Club activities split into three areas: socialising, fundraising and providing practical help at community events and for disadvantaged individuals and communities.
Social events include skittles and boules evenings; trips to Europe; visiting beer festivals; casino and race nights; an annual Charter Night ball; parties at members' homes and visiting other Rotary Club social events.
We hold a speaker night most months and have recently had talks on Brunel and from our Town Crier.
Our two biggest fundraising events are the annual Wessex Beer Festival which is held in early September and stewarding at the Glastonbury Festival. Members also go on the Exmoor Challenge and other cycling challenges.
Our community involvement has recently included cooking the BBQ at a Cheshire Home Fete, helping with Kids Out at Longleat, stewarding at village events, working with a group of young people to provide a garden in Radstock and helping to organise a martial arts festival.
