My point Liz, is that he was approached by someone (I don't know who) that wanted to use the room(s) for singing and dance practice. Now I know it wasn't by the committee. It was by somebody that wanted to use them for respective song and dance groups. Now, I assume that those people went back to those groups and said "right, the deal is that we can use it as long as we buy some drinks and food". It was a pre-condition of the deal. There was NOTHING in it for him. His bar is actually the biggest in the town and he really doesn't need the business at 8am.
It's a sad world that we live in if people can't see fit to support someone that has helped them in some small way.
Regarding the 'beer' point. Of course, that doesn't apply to everyone. That would be ludicrous.
