Charity cheque presentation

Wisbech Brewers, Elgood & Sons, were delighted to hand over cheques to two of their chosen charities.

The presentation took place on Friday 13th December at the North Brink Offices of Elgood & Sons where cheques for £620 each were  presented to the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity and East Anglian Air Ambulance.  The sum represented a year of fundraising, with money coming from the two Craft Fairs held in the Brewery Gardens and the September Beer Festival, as well as a raffle organised by Sheila and Dave Dyer at the Father’s Day Jazz Event, a donation from Skylark Studios and many more donations throughout the year.

Elgood’s Managing Director, Belinda Sutton, was very pleased to be handing over the cheques to two such deserving charities and congratulated everyone involved in the fund-raising on their hard work and generosity.

Elgood’s Beer Festival – another great year!

Elgood’s Beer Festival 2019

Elgood’s annual beer festival ended at 10.30 pm on Saturday 21st September.

Tired but happy staff and customers all agreed that this had been the best ever!  Visited by approximately 1000 people over the three days, the festival was blessed by sunny weather and the friendliest atmosphere.

Entertainment was from Toadfish Bone, The Cherry Reds, The Rusty Relics and Bewildered and helped the party go with a swing.  Caricaturist John Elson did a roaring trade in quick sketches of visitors and staff during Saturday afternoon and evening.  All proceeds from this not-for-profit event will be distributed to local charities.

Unique Display Unit for Elgood’s Brewery Shop

Wisbech Grammar School student, Amy Everall (daughter of Elgood’s Director, Jennifer), has made a unique bottle display cabinet as part of her D&T Product Design A Level.

Now in pride of place in our North Brink Shop, we think it’s brilliant!

Why not pop in and see Amy’s display for yourself and pick up some of our award winnings ales?

Lamb & Flag wins boating accolade.

On Thursday 14th March, Gina & Dennis Birch were presented with three framed photographs, courtesy of boat enthusiasts appreciative of the warm welcome offered to visitors to the Lamb & Flag.  Welney is listed as a destination for boaters by the Inland Waterways Association (www.waterways.org.uk).  Thank you to John Revell for telling us about the presentation and congratulations to Gina & Dennis for receiving this accolade.

The photographs show that boats have been using the Old Bedford River since it first opened in 1637.  The Inland Waterways Association is campaigning to fully restore this ancient navigation.  Those reaching Welney are sure of a warm welcome from the excellent Lamb & Flag.
