We were lucky, this time. Hawkshead Brewery escaped the 2015 floods. Others were not so lucky. To help them we have donated an amount for every cask we expect to sell in the run up to Christmas, to the Cumbria Flood Recovery Fund 2015, run by the Cumbria Community Foundation. They need the money now. We urge our customers also to donate what they can.
The brewery escaped but the village did not. Staveley is now cut in half. The flood wrecked the bridge and so the southern road in from the by-pass is closed. But the other road in is fine. You can get to us easily, just by turning off the by-pass at the north end of the village. Staveley is open for business. The brewery is open for business.
