There was also a special certificate for retiring Bar Committee Chairman Rob Creswick. As well as founding the five-day Real Ale Festival, he’s raised more than £4000 with sponsored walks, and also more than £20000 in business sponsorship – both for refurbishment of the Bar, Function Room and terrace.
