Raising a glass to war hero Harold

Posted by admin on November 15, 2013

Hundreds paid their respects at the funeral of Harold Percival at Lytham Park Crematorium. Below: Craig Daniels pouring a Jar of Jellicoe at the County Pub in Lytham.

Hundreds paid their respects at the funeral of Harold Percival at Lytham Park Crematorium. Below: Craig Daniels pouring a Jar of Jellicoe at the County Pub in Lytham.

A Fylde publican has paid his own special tribute to an heroic war veteran – just days after hundreds of people went to his funeral, despite never knowing him.

The story of Harold Jellicoe ‘Coe’ Percival captured the hearts of people across the UK on Remembrance weekend after it was revealed just a handful of family members would attend the RAF veteran’s funeral.

But after a death notice was placed in the Gazette’s sister paper, the Lytham St Annes Express, more than 500 people turned out to honour Mr Percival on Monday – Armistice Day – at Lytham Park Crematorium.

The story inspired Craig Daniels, landlord at The County Pub in Lytham, who, alongside the Lytham Brewery, produced a ‘Jar of Jellicoe’.

Mr Daniels said: “I was first told about Harold’s story by my wife Leighanne, who saw the death notice through Twitter when the comedian Jason Manford Tweeted the story.

“I decided I had to do something to honour him. For a man like that to serve the country so well, he deserves every honour going.”

Leighanne added: “I spotted it online and told Craig. He got in touch with James Booker, the managing director at Lytham Brewery and they got together to produce the Jar of Jellicoe.”

Mr Percival, who served in the RAF and helped prepare Lancaster Bombers before the Dambusters raids, never married and had no children.

Cheers to group’s own beer

A hands-on brewing experience for Lytham Round Tablers

A hands-on brewing experience for Lytham Round Tablers

Lytham’s Round Table Association has achieved a new first – by brewing its very own ale

The popular charitable mens’ club has teamed up with local business Lytham Brewery to create the 5,000 pints of ale which will be distributed across the Fylde coast from mid-September and October.

The club, which last year raised more than £14,000 for charity through an annual bonfire night display at Fylde Rugby Club and Santa’s Christmas tour of Lytham St Annes, will donate £10 to Lytham St Annes branch of RNLI with an additional £5 donated by Lytham Brewery, for every barrel of ale sold in the area.

And to celebrate the accomplishment, members will be saving some of their homemade ale for the 75th annual charter night anniversary dinner at Fylde Rugby Club on October 18.

Group chairman Adrian Banks said: “It was the concept of (member) Justin Kimber, with the support of the rest of the members, and was a way to celebrate our 75th anniversary and also support a local charity, as for every barrel sold a donation will be made by ourselves and Lytham brewery to the local RNLI.

“It is also hoped to raise awareness of the work and to work closely with a local company Lytham brewery, also to help attract new members, we are all keen to see the beer on sale.”

The product will be a lighter beer of around four per cent and the product’s taste will be determined at the final tasting which will be completed this Monday.

Round Table are also hoping to raise awareness of their activities through the publicity of the ale.

Although the main aim of the group is not to raise money for charity, they often hold fund-raising events for the RNLI and other local charities such as Ormerod Trust, Brian House, Air Ambulance, Park View 4U, Scouts and Guides, Riding for the Disabled and Children of Chernobyl.

The group meets twice a month and often goes on group activities.

To promote the beer and the organisation members have produced beer mats for all participating distributors.

Anyone interested in joining the Lytham Round Table or going along to one of the meetings can contact chairman Adrian Banks on 07779 244664 or tweet @Lytham

Something brewing at round table event…

The town’s well-known charity group is planning to serve up a special ale to celebrate 75 years of fun, fellowship and fundraising.
Tablers have teamed up with Lytham Brewery to produce their own ale and hope that beer lovers across the Fylde will join them in a toast to their organisation, which has supported hundreds of deserving local causes over the decades.
And by showing their support – by sinking hundreds of pints of “Round Table” – beer lovers will also be boosting a deserving charity. For Lytham Round Table is to make a donation of £10 and Lytham Brewery an additional £5 to the Lytham St Annes branch of the RNLI for every one of the 75 firkins of their unique beer sold to Fylde Coast pubs, bars and clubs.
The beer is to be produced by father and son team Andrew and James Booker– with Tablers encouraged to call in at their micro brewery operation in Lord Street, St Annes and play a “hands on” part in the processes of its production – adding hops to the brew and later at the end of the cycle, taking out the grist to bag up for animal food. 
Some 5,000 pints will be available in September and October.
It is hoped the special ale will increase Round Table’s profile – as they continue to search for new members. Beer mats for all participating venues are also being produced to promote the organisation for men, aged 18 to 45.

The club organises the annual Bonfire Night firework spectacular at Fylde Rugby Club and Santa’s Christmas tour of Lytham St Annes streets which together raised £14,000 for local charities last year.

Father and son team: ‘we’re only here for the beer

Lytham Brewery - pick a card? Andrew Booker

Lytham Brewery – pick a card? Andrew Booker

 But Lytham Brewery it most certainly is, rehoused after a fire ripped through the 
original (Lytham) base this time two years ago.

This is a far headier brew than coffee and frankly far more alluring. We’re off the beaten retail track on a small semi-industrial estate at St Annes.

That’s more by accident than design – and it couldn’t be a better base. Bags of 
security, plenty of potential for expansion.

It doesn’t boast the signage of the bigger name “micro” breweries. This is low profile but high quality brewing. Casual callers are often baffled trying to find this brewery. Pause, as I do, to ask “is Lytham Brewery around here?” and neighbouring industrial unit owners give a world weary shrug and nod to the kegs outside. Oh yes.
