Left Bank Beer Festival 2016 Review

Message from our (former) driver - Jim Pemberton

Good morning Peter

Just a quick note to say thank you for the kind comments in the summer edition of More Beer.

It has been a pleasure to drive the branch to drink! for the last twenty odd years.

The working relationship with Ken has been excellent and very professional- I must thank him for this.

As you now know I am a member of the branch and look forward to sitting at the back of the coach with the noisy buggers on some of the trips!!

Please pass on these comments to my friends at the branch
