The assize dates back to medieval times when the sheriff was responsible for checking that the ale on sale in the city was of palatable quality.

This tradition was reintroduced in 2003 by Gloucester City Council leader Paul James during his year as Sheriff of Gloucester.

The Sheriff has an Ale Connor, whose job it is to sit on a wooden stool, on which a small amount of ale has been poured, wearing a pair of leather trousers. If after three minutes the trousers stick to the stool, the ale does not pass the test. But if the Ale Connor can move freely at the end of the three minutes, it does pass.

A charity collection also took place in each venue for the civic charities which this year are The Klinefelter’s Syndrome Association UK and Leonard Cheshire Disability.
Last year they raised £832 for Carers Gloucestershire and The Family Haven.

Lyn said: This is my pledge to New Start Cats Rescue Charity. In exactly one months time I will be having my hair shaved completely off.

I want to Raise as Much Money for this WONDERFUL charity as I can. They all are Volunteers. NO ONE GETS PAID.

Most of us pay out of our own pockets. The Vets help out as much as they can but…………………BILLS KEEP COMING IN.

The Volunteers are at their lowest that they have EVER been in the 2 Years they have been running. They are exhausted and need more volunteers and helpers and funding. The very sad week of losing kittens in this heat has really Devastated The Charity… I want to cheer them up and this is what I hope will bring in some Money for them.”

 

The head shave took place at Cafe Rene on 10th August
