Wiltshire company supports local beer festival

By Anita Jaynes on 16 April, 2018

Debbie and John Williams, co-founders of one of Wiltshire’s most successful heating and plumbing companies, have stepped up to provide a vital ingredient at one of the county’s biggest beer and cider festivals – the glasses.

For the third year running, the couple have supported the annual Chippenham CAMRA Beer and Cider Festival which takes place in the town on Friday April 27 and Saturday April 28.

The event attracts hundreds of visitors who sample real ales, many brewed locally and this is the 26thannual event.

John said: “We’re proud to be able to help out. Supplying glasses for an event like this may seem like a small thing to do – however so many people come along it can be a headache to organise and sort out containers for the ales. We’re thrilled to be part of the festival which celebrates real ale and local producers.”

Run by the North Wilts CAMRA team, the event is being held at the Olympiad Leisure Centre and tickets are £10. These must be purchased for each tasting session – these run from 6pm to 11pm on Friday April 27, 11am to 4pm and 7pm to 11pm on Saturday April 28. Tickets must be purchased and are limited. Prizes are awarded for the best beers and ciders. Details can be found here.

Anyone who tweets #beersandcheers on social media with a picture of one of John and Debbie’s glasses – and tags them – will be entered in a prize draw to win a keg of beer.
