Kent master brewer takes part in Lord Mayor’s show

SHOW PONIES The Shepherd Neame dray in the procession

ONE of the area’s most popular brewers brought a taste of Kent to the City of London during the Lord Mayor’s Show earlier this month.

Shepherd Neame, which runs The Black Horse in Camden Road, The Bull in Frant Road, The Imperial in Southborough and The Blue Anchor in Crowborough, was invited to the procession due to chief executive Jonathan Neame’s position as Master of the Worshipful Company of Brewers.

The Faversham-based brewery drove a traditional dray in the procession, pulled by two shire horses.

Two of the company’s classic vehicles drove behind, crowned with hop flowers.

It was the brewer’s first time in the Lord Mayor’s annual event, which is organised by the City of London Corporation.

The event raises money for The Lord Mayor’s Appeal, which is supporting Samaritans, OnSide Youth Zones, DofE, Place2Be, OnSide Youth Zones and National Numeracy this year.
