Sir George launched a two day Beer and Cider Festival at the Fieldgate Centre in Kingsclere.
Helping draw the first pints were the Chairman of the Fieldgate Centre, Alan Hambridge and committee member Mike Harnetty.
"The Fieldgate Centre provides an ideal community facility for sport, as well as many other community projects, including the local Kingsclere Players. The Fieldgate Centre needs to rebuild it's finances and so the committee is running a series of events to raise money and also to raise awareness and increased useage by the community." Sir George drew the first pint, choosing Youngs Gold (no relation) and congratulated the committee on organising the event.
"On the following day the Rugby Club will be at the Fieldgate Centre, so I expect the nine barrels to be empty by closing time."
