Real ale fans raised their glasses to a successful festival on Saturday which raised almost £2,200 for Soham Scouts and Guides. The event at The Pavilion was organised by Soham Staploe Rotary Club and included entertainment from the Eel Pie Band and an all-day barbecue. Youngsters loved the opportunity to take part in plate crashing to raise cash and the organisers were so delighted with the turnout they are already planning next year's Real Ale Festival.
