Dudley Winter Ales Planning Meeting Report
Held on Mon 20th

A general discussion took place about the viability of running a festival. Ryan reported he had received good feedback via social media but many people were watching football. Several contacts had indicated their interest in taking on roles. Most of the usual people had indicated they were prepared to do their usual jobs but were not prepared to attend meetings. RESOLVED to take a final decision at branch meeting at Old Swan on Monday 27th.
