REAL ale lovers are urged to raise a glass or two at an annual fayre.

More than 40 different ales and ciders from local breweries will be on offer in a tent at St Mary’s Church May Fayre on Monday, May 7.

There will also be a bouncy castle, games, craft stalls and live music at the fayre, which is being held in the grounds of the church, in Fratton, Portsmouth.

People will also get to climb the church tower and admire the views. The Campaign For Real Ale has arranged for a beer tent to be at the event for the last 20 years.

All proceeds will go towards the upkeep of the church. Last year visitors to the beer tent raised £4,000 towards the cause.

Entry to the fayre is free. For more information contact
