Wine-tasting will assist campaigners

A CHRISTMAS wine-tasting will help residents of the Six Villages campaigning for their area.

Ford company Gusto Wines is staging the event at 6pm on November 30 at Barnham Community Hall. A share of the proceeds will be going to the Villages Action Group.

Entry is on the door, priced £5 redeemable against a £50 spend. Managing director Simon Williams said: “Getting planning decisions right is vital if we want to maintain this beautiful area as a tourist destination as well as a desirable place for families to live.

“We are a family-run business supplying wine to local pubs, restaurants, events and private clients, but we feel it is important to support our community in a wider sense.”

Simon supplied the main PA for the I Love My Village festival last summer and also played in one of the bands.

His company plans to become involved in more local events next year.
