The residents at Elm Bank care home in Kettering truly enjoy their national days of celebration and National Beer Day was no exception.

Many of us enjoy a good beer every now and then, for the residents and at Elm Bank care home it was an afternoon of getting together and sampling beers from around the world. National Beer Day in the UK is celebrated annually on the 15th of June, it is a significant day as it was also the date that the Magna Carta was sealed in 1215, which mentions ale in Article 35.

‘Let there be throughout our kingdom a single measure for wine and a single measure for ale and a single measure for corn…’
