Our local fellow club

Here's a link to our dear friends and rivals: the Tunbridge Wells Wine Circle. We are locked in friendly competition - we used to support their open show when they had one. Sadly, they have now ceased to run their own open show, but they still support ours. However, what remains is our inter-circle competition - and Tonbridge were the last winners - in 2014! In spite of this rivalry, we remain the firmest of friends!

Rubber O-rings for quart bottles

Have you a supply of perfectly good bottles that aren't being used because the rubber sealing washer has perished? Join the club! Finding replacements is NOT easy! However, I have found a company that supplies O-rings that do a wonderful job. Furthermore, these are sulfur dioxide proof! I used 20mm by 5mm but they were ever so slightly large - even though they worked perfectly. A better size would be 19mm by 5mm. The material used is: CS EPDM 70 ShA

Here is the link: www.polymax.co.uk

If you wish to write to them their address is: Polymax, Building 90, SEME, Budds Lane, Hampshire, UK, GU35 0JE
