The theme for the final beer and skittles, local ales, did not disappoint.

Great Gidding Skittles

The Cambridge Brewery, Oakham Ales, Bateman’s, Elgoods and the Pot Belly brewery all featured along with Thwaites outpost brewery in the Sawtry hinterland. Citra  and JHB from Oakham ales was well received along with Bateman’s Combined  Harvest. All the beers were eminently drinkable apart from the one that Mr Hodson thought tasted of a bonfire,  wether that was standing in or down wind we’re not sure.

The Ale’d and aimless award was unanimously awarded to Michael

On the skittle front, Mr Garner and Mr Crank showed how the game should be played, fast and furious. The Ale’d and aimless award was unanimously awarded  for the uncanny ability to throw one cheese without hitting any skittles, unique!

Don’t forget the Port supper at the end of the month, Andrew will do a circular e mail if he requires any extra goodies. Mrs T has volunteered a fruit cake.

Thank you everyone for your support during the winter, the yard of ale still makes me smile
