Hogs Back Brewery

Have you ever been around a brewery? Would you like to go around a small local brewery? Well here's your chance. We have arranged a tour of the Hogs Back brewery at Tongham in Surrey on the morning of 16 April.

The HBB have been making traditional English Ale for a number of years. You will see the brewing process and, if you wish, get to sample several of their beers and ales. Some of their seasonal ales are outstanding. There's also a very good shop where you can buy their products and a whole range of related items.

The tour costs £6.50 and lasts a couple of hours so you will still have plenty of the day left. Even if you are not into drinking beer I think you will find this visit really interesting. To book a place please contact Diana Carpenter on 020 8393 8029

The Mid Thames Trophy

AQSC is hosting the Mid Thames Trophy this year on Saturday 30 April. We will be having visitors from four or five other clubs and much of the improvements that have been going on at Aquarius over the last few months have been in preparation for this meeting. As in past years clubs can enter up to ten boats and I'm sure Richard will be keen to get as many of our boats on the water as possible Hopefully we can retain the Mid Thames Trophy, that's down to the team on the water; but as hosts, AQSC will be responsible for providing tea, coffee & snacks throughout the day and lunch for our visitors. The catering is in hand but help is required on the day in the galley and at the counter. So, if you can spare some time on 30 April it would be much appreciated.
