OUR FRIENDS /
We have some lovely friends who we would like to thank. They give us raffle prizes, help us create wonderful beer, provide us a space to run our events, or even give us discount on craft workshops! We also have friends in organisations, such as charities, who we are either currently supporting, or have worked with in the past.
