This week Bristol's Campaign For Real Ale (CAMRA) 'pubs officer' Pete Bridle joins us to celebrate after another successful Bristol Beer Festival at The Passenger Shed at Temple Meads. The branch is one of the largest in the country and they have nearly 200,000 members nationally. We discuss the rapid pub closures going on in Britain and ask why that's taking place, child-free pubs, sports pubs and 'micro pubs' which are more intimate and often don't sell spirits. The Bristol branch organise events throughout the year including guided coach trips around the region's pubs and lots of socials, all for an annual membership fee of around £25.

Dermot O'Regan is one of the founders of Grow Bristol, dedicated to producing food crops in the urban environment. Trouble is so much urban soil has been contaminated over the years by industrial and domestic waste they've decided to grow their food hydroponically, that is without soil. Although its not possible for food grown this way to be certified organic by the Soil Association it is probably as, or even more pesticide free than conventional organic food. The urban farmers supply greengrocers as well as some of Bristol's top restaurants and lately demand has been outstripping supply. Grow Bristol is looking to expand and Dermot is appealing for anyone who knows of a good indoor space, particularly near housing, high street, or other place that needs greens and vegetables to get in touch. Even if its cleared land, he has shipping containers in which the crops can be grown.

What do you do when the doctors can't heal you or relieve your pain? A new Christian healing centre has just been opened at the City Road Baptist Church and they believe doctors aren't always the end of the line. Faith healers have had a bad press in recent decades and there have been notorious fakers such as US Peter Popoff, debunked by James Randi yet Dave Coates and former nurse Lynne Weaver say they have seen the power of prayer healing people again and again. They're running their free healing sessions every Wednesday inviting people of all faiths and none to give it a try.
