Well that’s LOTY done for another year! A disappointing turnout by our members, but holding the meeting on a Friday was a first. I doubt we will repeat it any time soon. However on a happier note we raised £2,000 for our hosts charity, the Prospect Hospice.
Lots of older labels, donated by our members were auctioned & it would be fair to say, some absolute bargains were acquired.
Our hosts hospitality was outstanding & an excellent buffet was enjoyed by all. Alex Arkell gave us an entertaing history & tour of the brewery.
We are delighted to welcome Arkells as Corporate members of the Society & look forward to assisting them with research into the history of the breweries labels.
Thanks must go to all of our members, who donated labels or who attended and parted with their hard earned cash. I would also like to thank those who work so hard behind the scenes, visting breweries & bottlers, cutting up labels etc.
