MOUSEHOLE'S Royal British Legion branch hosted a beer festival over the bank holiday weekend as it hoped to attract new faces to the club.

The event, which ran from Friday until Monday, was put on to raise money for the charity and let people know that anyone can drop in for a drink.

Organiser David White said it was well received and all the ales on tap were sold "down to the very last drop".

He noted that two of the favourites were Penzance Brewing Co's Potion Number 9 and Black Rock – made by a Falmouth brewery – which both went "very quickly", though he added all proved popular.

Mr White, a member of the Legion's committee in the village, said it was nice to see regulars joined by customers who had not ventured inside before.

"It was nice because we had people in who hadn't ever been," he said.

"The thing about it is, it's important to let people know that they are welcome.

"We were very busy. It was a great four days."

Mr White added that all the money raised goes to a good cause and he was thankful to everyone who played a part.

The event has been running for four years and Mr White said it had been growing each year.
