JLD Update: October 2019

 

The JLD kicked off October with a fantastic mixed event with DASLS at Sandford Brewery. This event included a tour of the cider works as well as numerous tastings and finally a round of pizzas to soak it all up.

All of the ciders made by Sandford only use apples grown within 30 miles of the press itself.  Well known Sandford options which you may have seen at your local include Devon Red and Red Mist.

 

A firm favourite tasting for the group was the General. This being their finest vintage cider which is aged in their mighty 100 year old oak vat nicknamed ‘The General,’ pictured here.

 

It was a fantastic evening and we would recommend that anyone who gets the chance visits Crediton to see the cider works in action.

 

Members of the JLD who had recently qualified as Solicitors and been proudly admitted to the Roll, as well as those who were due to do so in the coming weeks, were honoured at the DASLS Admissions Ceremony on 14 October.  The ceremony took place at Exeter Guildhall, with speeches from DASLS President Nigel Lyons and His Honour Judge Edward Richards.  Members were presented with certificates congratulating them on their qualification, and celebrated the occasion with friends and family.

 

On 24 October, the JLD Charity Quiz was a roaring success with teams from a number of local firms battling it out to win as well as help raise the final pennies for our charity of the year, The Wave Project. A fantastic £1,049.40 was raised over this year for The Wave Project and their quiz team were presented the cheque for this sum on the night.
