Carnival of Ales & Ciders

We had a very good day out on Saturday at what will hopefully become Oundle's annual Carnival day. The procession was well supported by both floats and spectators, and the party continued at Oundle RFC until late.

The Beer Festival at the rugby club was also a huge success, with our three barrels of cider and all the real ales selling out well before closing time. This can only have been helped by the extremely efficient bar staff, who had a very good system going which meant vast quantities of ale and cider flowed, without any of the tiresome need to queue at the bar. Always a bonus.

Congratulations to festival organiser Lee Green and his hard working team on an excellent event. The only downer on the day was the British & Irish Lions leaving their magnificent fightback against the Springboks just a little too late to win the day.
