The beer and cider will flow at a festival this week.

Yeo Valley Lions organises a drinks festival every summer to raise money for causes it supports. It will be held at Claverham Village Hall, in Bishops Road, on Friday and Saturday.

Festival tickets for the two 7.30pm evening sessions, priced £8-10, are available at AB's Motorcare, Yatton Newsmarket, Bishops Stores, Hodder's Family Butchers, the hall or at
