Colleagues from the Horsforth branch of estate agency Manning Stainton raised a glass to toast the success of a beer festival held at a cricket club sponsored by the firm.
Helen King and Simone Si Mohamed needed little persuasion to call in at Horsforth Hall Park over the Easter weekend to sample the delights being served up from a range of breweries.
Beer aficionados had nearly 40 real ales to choose from during the three day event and were also treated to a full programme of live music from bands including Horsforth based The Witness.
The club’s vice chairman and event organiser Bob Hodson said: ‘This was our first ever beer festival and has involved an incredible amount of hard work.
“However, thanks to the support of all our sponsors and the hundreds of people who turned up, it has been a runaway success.’ Helen, a valuer and sales negotiator at the Manning Stainton branch on New Road Side in Horsforth adds: ‘We are all delighted for Bob and the rest of the committee that their efforts have paid off.
“Clubs like Hall Park play such an important role in the community and their future depends on the success of events like this.’
The club which plays in the Airedale and Wharfedale League celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2015 and now boasts over 600 members. The clubhouse is open every day and is a popular spot for visitors to the park who require refreshments.
Horsforth Hall Park is one of many local clubs and organisations supported by Manning Stainton. In 2015 the company donated in excess of £65,000 to more than 100 worthwhile causes. The Horsforth branch is open seven days a week.
