A forgotten ale from 1895 is being brought back to life at a North Hykeham pub.

As part of its quarterly guest ale programme, The Centurion, in Newark Road, will be serving Archer's Old Glory to its thirsty drinkers.

The ale is based on a recently rediscovered recipe which ceased production in 1895. It was brewed for the first time in more than a century just two months ago.

Bill McCamile, manager of The Centurion, said: "We're delighted to be the first national pub group to offer the ale, and would urge anyone looking for an authentic taste of the past to pay us a visit."

Old Glory is 4.5 per cent strength and is described as a premium English ale with a fruity hop aroma and dark amber bitter.

Schools and colleges are being given the chance to take advantage of badminton lessons in the autumn.

Coaches from Lincolnshire Sports Partnership are training youngsters of all abilities from September. Sessions can be booked as part of the curriculum or as an after-school activity.
