Round Table Gearing Up for a Fantastic Beer Festival

After recovering from the fantastic success of the Christmas Santa runs, Currie, Balerno and District Round Table will be holding the third annual Currie Beer and Curry Festival on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th June at the Gibson Craig Hall.  Tickets will be going on sale in March: to find out exactly when, check out an ‘like’ the Beer Festival’s Facebook page – search for ‘CurrieBeerFest’.

The organisers are planning a bigger event this year, with over thirty Scottish ales, lagers and stouts for tasting. A variety of ciders and wines will also provided, so you don’t have to love beer to come along!  The team will still be bringing you curry, served in a range of ‘street food’ bites to enable faster food service, with live bands to entertain you.

Sponsorship of the festival is starting to hot up, with ‘firkin’ packages for smaller businesses getting snapped up.  The team would also love to hear from anyone interested in being the main event sponsor.  If you would like more information on sponsorship, please contact Ross Henderson at beer@cbdrt.com.

In the meanwhile, ‘normal’ Round Table business continues, supporting good causes with links to the local community.  Recently, the Table has supported a gap year student going to teach first aid in Kenya, a Currie Community High School trip to Chogoria High School in Kenya, and the Balerno WRI’s proposed publication of a new book about the local area.  If you would like to find out more about Round Table, please contact them at www.cbdrt.com.

Swimmer Shannon Gets New Suit Thanks to CBDRT

Just a quick update to let you and your members know. Shannon has been selected by Scottish Swimming to represent Scotland at the British National Disability Championships on the 28th February 1st and 2nd March in Sheffield at Pond Forge (the home of British Swimming) She is still very much on the Paralympics programme and training very hard.

With the help of the CBRT donation we have now purchased Shannon a high performance competition swim suit by Arena professional swimwear, as Shannon will be up against some of the best swimmers in the UK & world for that matter. The swim suit gives her a small advantage hopefully shaving some 1/100ths of a second from her times.
