Scruton now has its own ale, ‘Thankful Scruton IPA’, inspired by our special status as one of only 56 villages whose soldiers all returned home from WWI. At the end of the Great War, villagers raised money for a peace memorial in the form of a clock which was installed on the church tower in 1921 as a symbol of thankfulness.

The first 36 cases of Thankful Ale are sold, but more will be available soon at £25 per case (10 bottles), including a free draw to win a Yorkshire Fruit Cake Company Hamper! Contact Richard Burton-White on 07545 123 856.

Proceeds from the sale of Thankful Ale will be split between the Cricket Club, Scruton Families Day and a celebration (hopefully next year) at St Radegund’s Church commemorating 100 years since the dedication of the Clock.
