MORE than 40 beers and ciders were enjoyed by around 600 people at the Aylsham Round Table charity beer festival.

At least �2,500 has been raised for local charities by the event, although the figure could rise as high as �3,000 say organisers.

One of two main annual fundraisers by the Round Table branch - the other is a fireworks night - the festival was staged on Friday evening and all day on Saturday.

Organiser Simon Greenfield said around three-quarters of the beer barrels brought to the Cawston Road community centre had been emptied by drinkers.

"It was a very successful festival - our fourth - and it looks like we have bettered last year's charity total of �2,500. There was a good range of ages across the board," he added.

Entertainment was provided by jazz band One Foot in the Groove and young rock band Attention to Detail.
