Rotary Club's free beer festival is this Saturday

By John Nurden

Nearly 40 real ales, 15 ciders and four live bands should ensure Minster-on-Sea Rotary Club’s 10 beer festival is a barrel of laughs on Saturday.

The free bash will once again be in the car park of the Aviator pub at Queenborough Corner, Sheppey.

An inflatable pub will cater for lager and spirit drinkers.
