King of the Belgians Acorn is enormously grateful to the King of the Belgians Hartford for an amazing donation of £2000 which was presented to Simon on 12 August. The funds arose from a beer festival held in May.  The tradition of fund raising for local charities through a beer festival was first proposed by a US ex-serviceman who was a regular  at the pub during a UK tour of duty.
The Poacher Elsworth

Grateful thanks are due to David Taylor, mine host at the Poacher Elsworth who has arranged the coming Christmas Quiz at the pub on 14 December to raise funds for Acorn.   We would be pleased to have you join us in this festive fun.  To book a place ring David on 01954 267722
