St Wulfram's Church and Grantham Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) have joined together once again to host the Land of Hops and Glory Beer Festival.

It's the first beer festival at the church for associate rector Father Clay Roundtree.

He said: "So far so good. Everyone seems to be enjoying themselves and chatting away. They really seem to be interested in the different ales.

"The atmosphere is very relaxed but we expect it to get busier later. I'm having a great time."
