The planning application seeking planning permission for the erection of the Tank memorial has now been formally validated by the City Council and is being assessed. It is hoped that a formal decision will be reached in the New Year. In supporting the local Group through this exceptionally worthwhile project Globe is happy to be able to report that the fundraising efforts are bearing fruit which will ensure this project will become a reality within the centenary year of the ‘Great War’. This includes the launch of the Lincoln Tank Ale brewed by Pheasantry Brewery of East Markham. A donation will be made to the Tank Memorial Group for each cask of Ale sold. The Ale is being sold by Small Beers of Lincoln and by the brewery direct. It is described as a well hopped classic English Beer with a full rounded flavour and low to medium bitterness, 4.2 % ABV. What better way to support this fantastic project than to enjoy a locally brewed beer!
