She had long been aware that there was a real need for high quality nursery childcare in West Berkshire.

All the wines for Peasefest have been selected and delivered by local Wine merchant Wine-Man Ltd based in Yattendon (next door to one of our beer sponsors West Berks Brewery as it happens).
Wine-Man Ltd is an independent wine merchant run by husband and wife team Ian and Paula Hewson, ably assisted by our general manager, Samantha Barker and webmaster, Richard Disney.
The business was founded in 1999 and is run from our premises in the beautiful West Berkshire village of Yattendon. Wine-Man sources and supplies wines from all over the world. We import directly from producers in France, Spain, Portugal and Italy. Our buying policy is to select wines which offer a great quality to price ratio – wines which reflect the enthusiasm and energy of the winemakers who have made them, rather than the bland, over-processed and dull industrial wines that have largely taken over today’s so-called "special offer" shelves. We look to stock wines which represent great value at their normal shelf price and do not artificially increase prices in order to offer a huge "discount."

Two Cocks Brewery is a two-man band based on a small farm just outside Newbury and is very much rooted in its surroundings: the water for the brews comes from our borehole, some of the hops grow in the hedges and the spent ingredients are fed back to the cattle, pigs or land. It is reputed that the Roundheads camped on-site before the First Battle of Newbury, and at Peasefest you can enjoy our award-winning Cavalier and Roundhead.
We are proud of our association with Mencap, Newbury, who have the fiddly job of labelling each bottle by hand.
