West End Tavern: Cask Marque Accreditation and Festive Fair

Congratulations!!!! The West End Tavern has been awarded a Cask Marque Accreditation. This is awarded after a pub and cellar are inspected and the quality of the cask beers served is found to be of a very high standard.

Sean has worked very hard to improve the cellar and is proud to serve a ‘great pint’. Real Ales are becoming more and more popular and there is now a Cask Finder App which will let you know about the pubs local to you serving real ales as well as tasting notes for most ales.

Also The West End Tavern are hosting a Festive Fair on Thursday 8th November between 6pm and 8pm. Gemma Keith Designs, Grey & Bruce, Jo Boardman Silver Jewellery, Marden Farm Shop, Pastime Pins, Rachie’s Flowers, Zubeida Roberts Art and Safe Anaesthesia will be there. Also live music by Michael Lack. Entry is Free

Pattenden Vets Social Event

On Monday 29th October the Marden Business Forum were delighted to visit a new member of our business community & already highly valued addition to the Marden Community as a whole.

Pattenden Veterinary Clinic is a state of the art practice, thanks in no small way to their close working relationship with neighbors Burtons Medical Equipment Ltd. – the UK’s largest supplier of Veterinary Equipment.

David Burton was in attendance, with his son Matt, to support Lara Hummel, Tori Jordan & Janet Clark proudly showing the gleaming facility to a large group of forum members.

Janet is the practice’s Administrator whilst Lara and Tori are your new friendly practicing Vets. All three have enjoyed an established working relationship for several years before deciding to set up an Independent practice in Marden.

Since opening in May this year the practice already boasts nearly 600 clients, mainly dealing with dogs and cats but a few other household pets and chickens along the way.

We wish Lara, Tori and Janet all the best for a long and successful future and thank them wholeheartedly for hosting a highly enjoyable & social event.

During the MBF’s Event at Pattenden Vetinary Clinic we were treated to a short talk by Bridget Wood on Medical Detection Dogs.

How amazing is the work being done by them to save lives and also the research that is trying to artificially mimic the “nose” to detect various cancers.

Thank you Bridget.

If anyone would like to contact Bridget to either donate to her new puppy or just to learn more about this incredible charity, please email her: Bridgetwood2011@gmail.com


THIS MONDAY! Only 10 places left!!
