Mark and Jess Bamping launch their community hub – Candid Beer in Stafford this weekend. Mark loves beer and I am sure will brew as well as serve up decent local and creative independent craft beers. But the driver is community and rather than calling it a cafe or pub it’s a community hub. Mark brought the idea to our make good week a while back now and when he made his pitch, as well as serving beer he had brewed (making it a memorable pitch), he was concerned about loneliness and thinking that men in particular will gather around doing stuff together (such as brewing beer). They have developed this into the design of the space and there being a room for groups and activities as well as a larger table to gather round. Rraise a glass of craft beer today to toast Candid beer on their launch and go visit if you are anywhere nearby.
There is a Make Good week coming up at Cliff College 13-17 May and there are a few spaces left so if you have an idea for a project or enterprise to make good in the world then sign up!
