HORWICH BEER FESTIVAL | Thursday 5th September - Saturday 7th September 2019 | Horwich RMI | Ramsbottom Road BL6 5NH

Welcome to the 19th Horwich Beer Festival - Run by the Rotary Club of Horwich - "Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary Things."

The members of our club and additional volunteers have once again risen to the challenge of giving you all a cracking weekend of entertainment.

We are proud to offer you a wide range of ales, beers, lagers, ciders and a Prosecco bar for the Ladies. We sadly lost one of the stalwarts of our club this year, Bernard Walsh, who was a driving force behind this concept some 20 years ago. One of our beers is named in his honour and I’d recommend you give Bernard’s Bitter a try.

We have tried in the last few years to keep the music at a background level so that you can talk as well as drink to add to your enjoyment.

Once again the Beer Festival will be our major fundraiser for the year towards covering the costs of our charitable work in 2018/19. As well as your selves we must thank those local businesses and individuals who have sponsored us this year. Without their help this event would get nowhere near the £10,000 plus it raises each year

All of the money we raise will be distributed to Local, National and International projects where we can get clear oversight of the spend to ensure very little is spent on administration. Our local activities tends to focus on the needs of the young people of Horwich to improve the quality of their lives, in particular their health, cultural, social and sporting needs. Our international work is focused on some of the more impoverished parts of the world. With the use of our International network of fellow Rotarians we have been able to significantly contribute to the improved access children have to clean water, education and health care in some parts rural Africa.

My thanks, also, to the Beer Festival committee and their team of volunteers for all the work they put in leading up to and during this festival.

Finally my thanks to you for supporting us once again this weekend. I hope it’s enjoyable and you will be back with us again next year!

Margot Mather - President, Rotary Club Of Horwich 2018/19
