Chippenham Beer and Cider Festival

Chippenham Beer and Cider festival
The other weekend I visited the Chippenham Beer Festival. I met with a number of committee members from the local CAMRA branch to discuss several issues surrounding the licenced pub trade, including the importance of pubs to our local communities and various challenges facing the sector. I campaigned for a freeze in beer duty in the budget to support our local pubs and the jobs they create, I was glad to see this measure in the budget.

It was also fantastic to get the chance to get behind the bar and serve constituents whilst enjoying what was a busy, vibrant and successful Beer & Cider festival.
