Astons Social Klub (formed 16 January 2018)

ASK is a new activity group for the Astons, open to all, which proposes to provide a varied programme of talks, visits and activities. Everyone is welcome to join us - either by annual subscription or just by coming along to whichever sessions you like the look of.

We aim to have a mix of afternoon and evening meetings, to maximise convenience for everyone, and will also have a wide range of trips and activities to suit all comers.

Do please come along to any of our meetings - occasional attendance is more than welcome - or if you fancy joining us for one of our trips just let us know.  

OUR NEXT MEETING:  April 25th. 8pm. at the Astons Village Hall.

"A taste for gin – a short history and a lengthy tasting". 

An evening devoted to Gin, including a talk and tasting led by William Betts. William is a Master of Wine student and co-founder of Smeaton's Gin, which faithfully recreates an archive recipe that was years ahead of its time when first made  in 1870s Bristol.
