A TWELVE-HOUR beer and food festival held in Warslow on Saturday has been described as the best ever.
Fine weather helped to attract an excellent crowd to the eighth festival, which was held at the village hall.
Organisers had 21 draught beers on offer and around five types of cider, as well as wine, Pimm's and soft drinks. One of the organisers, Gilbert Rooke, said: "It was a great day and probably the best one so far. The event attracted people from as far away as Cambridge.
"The 21 beers and five boxes of cider were all sold, while the sausages and burgers supplied by local butchers, Bagshaws, also proved very popular. All the bands went down very well as did the children's entertainer."
Proceeds from the event will go towards staging next year's festival, but organisers stated that some money could go back into a community project.
