Mold NovemberFest, the town’s annual beer festival, attracted almost 600 people over the weekend. The popular event, which is Mold’s main fundraiser, is used to help stage other events in the town through the year. This year, it also raised money for the Buckley and Mold Lions Prostate Cancer testing campaign. Jackson Fire & Security was one of the sponsors and our managing director Steve Jackson attended the event on the Friday evening at St Mary’s Church Hall, King Street. He said: “Mold’s NovemberFest is getting more popular each year, with an increase in visitors including a sell-out on the Saturday. “Jackson Fire & Security has been involved for a number of years and we look forward to sampling the real ale we have sponsored. “I grew up in Mold and it’s a pleasure for me to be able to give back. The event itself is a fantastic social gathering. More importantly, it acts as a boost for the town to hold further events throughout the year. “We’ve already got next year’s date in the diary.” In addition to more than 30 real ales, NovemberFest also hosts other local drinks, as well food and live music. The event is organised by Mold Town Council in conjunction with Mold and Buckley Lions, the local CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale branch), and a group of volunteers. Town Centre manager Dave Hill added: “The selection of 30 real ales, ciders and ‘real’ lagers went down very well. “I would like to thank all our sponsors and volunteers for the tremendous support, with this year seeing every barrel being sponsored.” For more information about Mold’s NovemberFest, visit
