A charity wine tasting will kick off a new year of events for Tockwith and District Agricultural Society.

Tockwith Show president Sarah Burckhardt has organised the night to raise money for her chosen charities, Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the Farming Community Network.

It takes place at The Forge in Tockwith, behind the Spotted Ox pub, on Saturday, February 6 from 7pm. Teams will compete to taste eight wines and guess which of three descriptions is correct for each glass.

Sarah said: “I’m really looking forward to the wine tasting and I’m pleased that Yorkshire Vintners have agreed to supply the wines.

“We’ll have a range of reds, whites, rosés, a sparkling and a dessert wine, so there should be something to suit all palates.”

Tickets, £10, from Sarah on 07951 587318 or secretary Steve Ross on 07976 268012.
