Hugh Reid - First Fowler's Companion Honoured
Companion The First, and Two Fine New Fowlers' Fellows
February 9th 2006 was the day that CAMRA UK Vice President [and Fowler's Fellow: September 2005] Colin Valentine ff came to the Prestoungrange Gothenburg to re-present the Best UK Conservation Pub 2005 Award - the first version had alas mispelt Gothenburg. His apologies accepted, of course, he joined in the most significant of the Fowler's Ceremonies as three new Members were admitted.
Pride of place here has to go to Hugh Reid fc, the first man to gain the award of Fowler's Companion, having successfully completed three BrewSets under Craig Allan's tutelage. His wife Ute Davies ff was also in attendance. The Baron of Prestoungrange made the presentation.
