It isn’t true, apparently, that Serco couldn’t run a piss-up in a brewery
because they claim they did! It was back in 2013, when they had taken over the Beacon Park Golf Course and it soon started to resemble a landfill site. And still does, because it is!
It’s got worse ever since , but they actually ran a weekend Beer Festival and you can guess what happened? Yes, members, especially the Seniors, loved the beer and soon forgot the state of the golf course.
Serco described the event as a “treat for Real Ale and Cider enthusiasts”. And members are still claiming its the only event Serco got right! So, the lesson seems to be, don’t go for the golf, wait for a beer festival!
