Are you interested in the way in which science and technology affects our lives? Are you worried that science is taking us down a steep and slippery slope?

Are you sure that what you read in the papers or hear on the TV about these things is true – or do you suspect that sometimes the stories are exaggerated to make better headlines?

The public often think that scientists simply don’t care about the potential impact of what they do and scientists often feel that the public doesn’t understand and that the true story is distorted by hysterical scaremongering. Neither side is right – but opportunities for dialogue and discussion are rare: scientists mostly talk to other scientists – and the public doesn’t often have a chance to ask questions of the ‘experts’.

This doesn’t have to be the case! Come along to a Café Sci session – say what you think and hear what others say – are you in the minority or does everybody else share your concern? Each session will be introduced by an expert – but only to provide a framework of accurate information as a starting point’ these are not ‘lectures’ but an opportunity for open but informed discussion.

Jennings have sponsored Cockermouth’s Café Scientifique’ Ann & John Lackie of Plumbland Consulting will organise it’ you’ the public’ need to come along – or don’t you care about these things?

Beer has been brewed in Ringwood for centuries ever since mediaeval man first mixed the crystal water of the River Avon with the malted barley harvested from the surrounding fertile fields of Hampshire.

The market town was a magnet for merchants and dusty drovers who needed their thirst slaked and whistles wetted before they could get down to the business of bargaining and bartering and many a deal was sealed over a draught and a noggin in one of the many taverns’ inns and ale houses that gave Ringwood one of the highest pubs per head of population in olde England.
