This year’s ‘Ripping-Ale’ Beer Festival attracted crowds from near and far, with its good food, good music and good real-ale.

In its 15th year, the event proved a hit once again, raising plenty of money that will be donated to Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance and Lives.

The sunshine brought great barbecue weather for the 1st Pointon Baden-Powell Scout Group - who helped to serve food to the punters, helping to boost their funds.

This was the last beer festival for two of its key members, Jeannie Tarleton and John 
Scholes - who have been with the festival from day one.

The committee would like to thank everyone that was involved with the event for all their support.
