New Malden beer festival raised £3,000 for charity
A sheep who brings a drop of rural sunshine to suburbia entertained crowds at a beer festival, which raised more than £3,000 for charity.
Children met Amy the sheep and her owner Roger Reynolds, from New Malden, at the Woodies Freehouse annual event, which ran from August 17 to 19.
More than 60 beers flowed over the three day festival, which was attended by beer lovers as well as families, at the New Malden pub, at the sportsground, in Thetford Road.
Manger of Woodies, Linda Thompson-Jones, said there was also live music, entertainment, food, Morris dancers and a visit from New Malden firefighters.
She said: “It was fantastic. It was very busy and trouble free with a great atmosphere.”
More than £3,000 was raised by the event and will be donated to charities including scout groups, Princess Alice Hospice, Shooting Stars Hospice and Help for Heroes.
