Beerfordbury Wassail 2011

Beerfordbury Barrel Tappers and Wine Tipplers Association

All proceeds go to our selected charities. We pay our own expenses.

This year we have suffered a string of incapacities - so our ability to turn out a decent crew on many nights means that we'll be running light - and may only manage three tours. (Come to think of it we've never had a crew with a really high level of decency anyway)
