Conservative Club wins real ale prize for third successive year

The Conservative Club in Maidenhead has won an award recognising its selection and quality of real ales for the third year in a row.

The hard work of husband and wife team Ray and Vivien Williams, who have run and lived above the club in York Road for 25 years, has secured the award from the Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA).

The social club sell four ales permanently plus guest ales from suppliers including The Cottage Brewing Company in Somerset and Vale Brewery in Aylesbury.

Ray, 63, said: "It takes a lot of work to maintain the pipes and keep the ales in good condition but I'm partial to a spot of it myself so I really enjoy doing it."

Ray, who says his favourite tipple is London Pride, ensures he walks around Maidenhead football ground eight times each morning to keep his beer belly at bay.

The Conservative Club will now go forward for judging against other award winning clubs within the south central region.
