    Father Michael Mount Saint Bernard Abbey Leicestershire Trappist ale

    Today was a lovely day for a beer, which was good timing for the monks at Mount Saint Bernard Abbey as they launched the UK's first Trappist beer.

    Based near Coalville, they're just the 12th brewery in the world to be granted permission to call themselves Trappists.

    According to rules set out by the International Trappist Association, Trappist beers must be brewed in the abbey or under monks' supervision, with the brewery secondary to the monastery and its income used to cover costs and help charitable causes.

    The beer, called Tynt Meadow, comes in at 7.4% ABV and will be on sale from next month.

    Father Michael, the head brewer, said he's "excited" to see what people think of it.

  12. School meals rise 'would hit most vulnerable'

    Eddie Bisknell

    Local Democracy Reporter

    School meals in Derbyshire could increase for the first time in three years under new proposals.

    Under county council plans, primary, nursery and special school meals would go up by 10p day to £2.10 and secondary school meals are to rise 5p to £2.40.

    Meanwhile, the cost of adult meals served in schools would increase by 5p to £2.88.

    county hall

    The authority says the increase is needed due to rising costs but Labour has criticised the plans, saying it would hit the most vulnerable the hardest.

    Councillor Jim Coyle said: "This administration has hammered us with the biggest tax rise in recent memory, and now this.

    "How much more pain do they plan to dish out to Derbyshire people?"

    Take-up of school meals has increased over the past 12 months, with more than two-thirds of primary and nursery pupils and over half of secondary school pupils receiving meals each day.

    Councillor Alex Dale said: "The council has held recommended school meal prices at their current level since 2015. However, our costs are increasing and we do need to respond to that to ensure we can continue to provide high quality meal options for all children in our schools."

    A discussion into the proposals will be held later this month behind closed doors due to business and cost sensitivity.

  13. Shopping arcade murals restored

    Historic murals in a shopping centre, depicting Robin Hood and moments from Nottingham's history, have been restored to their former glory.

    The artworks in the dome of Exchange Arcade, behind Nottingham Council House, were orignially painted 90 years ago but have deterioated because of water damage.

    They show the Vikings capturing the city in the ninth Century, William the Conqueror ordering the building of Nottingham Castle in 1068 and King Charles I raising his Standard at the start of the Civil War.

    There's also a picture of Nottingham's most famous outlaw and his Merry Men, which was the most damaged.

    Restoration work started inside the Grade-II listed building in March.

    Leader of the city council Jon Collins, said: "I would encourage everyone to look up when they enter The Exchange and see the final results for themselves.”
