Please may I use the pages of your newspaper to put on public record my admiration and personal thanks to everyone from the Harrogate Round Table who worked tirelessly, with unfailing commitment and with unlimited good humour, to make this year’s Harrogate Beer Festival such a great success.
I have attended the festival as a visitor in the past, but this year I was there with a beer of our own, so I saw from behind the scenes the amount of time and effort involved.
The task to prepare and set up beforehand, to keep the beer flowing, the bands playing and the visitors happy, and then clear up afterwards, was enormous.
I know that every one of those Round Table members will have given their time and energy selflessly, with no expectation of any such recognition, and I don’t know exactly how much money has been raised for local good causes. But what I do know, is that anyone who enjoyed the festival, or anyone who at some time may benefit from support that is made possible through the charity fundraising, should gladly raise a glass and give a heartfelt thank you to each and every one of The Round Table for making it all possible.
Thank you. A job well done. Here’s to next year!
