Cider and real ale flowed freely after more than 5,000 people turned out to this year’s beer festival.

The Weston Lions Club again hosted a successful three-day festival down on the town’s Beach Lawns where people were able to sit back and enjoy some live music while sampling the very best in local cider and beer.

Club president John Holland said the festival from Friday to Sunday was hit slightly by the ‘uncertain’ weather forecasts but he was still happy people turned out in their thousands to help the club raise money for its causes.

He added: “The atmosphere in the marquee was amazing and we had many comments regarding the choice of beers and ciders, the music and the choice of food available.”

The final tally is not yet known but all profits raised will go to Weston Hospital’s Scanner Appeal, Guide Dogs For The Blind, hearing dogs and many more.
