Poor weather didn’t deter Caister Lifeboat Beer and Cider Festival revellers

It wasn't the sunshine they had hoped for, but the bad weather didn't put customers off enjoying the Caister Lifeboat Beer and Cider Festival over the weekend.
More than 50 real ales and ciders were on offer at the festival, which has grown to become the independent life-saving charity's second-biggest fund raising event - and so far almost £20,000 has been raised.
Lifeboat chairman Paul Garrod said although turnout was a bit lower than previous years, he put this down to the weather and the football.
He said: 'It was lively, and I'd like to thank the crew members who helped and the breweries.
'Everyone seemed to have a good time and it was a good weekend.'

This year, punters were also able to sample 10 wines, and food was served from the Lifeboat Cafe and a fish-and-chip phone and deliver service from J Thompson's. On Sunday, the Bungay butcher John Groom carved up a tasty hog roast.
Numbers are still being tallied up for how many attended and how much was raised, but the event - now in its sixth year - looks set for more success in the future.
