Two Nottingham councillors dropped into their local, the Bread & Bitter in
Mapperley, prior to Christmas to enjoy the hospitality of this fine Castle
Rock pub and, of course, a pint of Harvest Pale.
It was also a chance for Councillors Darrell Pulk and Jim Creamer,
Labour representatives on Gedling Borough Council, to meet up with
Castle Rock directors Chris Holmes and Peter Brettell to discuss some
of the issues affecting the industry as the year draws to a close.
Toasting a fruitful 2009 are (from left) Pete Brettell & Chris Holmes

Councillors Darrell Pulk and Jim Creamer.
The Bread & Bitter, on Woodthorpe Drive, celebrated its first
birthday on December 4th. How time flies!!
